Wildlife: Wintry weather to take toll on Colorado mule deer

“Harsh winter conditions in northwestern Colorado may take a toll on already struggling mule deer herds, state biologists said last week, explaining that they’ve started a limited feeding program to try and keep ungulates from invading cattle grazing areas.”  From: summitcountyvoice.com

GR:  The following was NOT overheard in a U. S. Forest Service Office:  “Deer might die, but please don’t feed them. They must not develop any dependency on us.  Moreover, you can rest assured that we will not let them eat a single weed that a cow might want.  The deer might die, but that’s nature.  They’re used to harsh winters, and we must protect the valuable cows.”
