Deer Do Eat Meat

by jf

I was searching for instances of carnivory or scavengery in deer and found your site. FYI, you are incorrect. Deer have been documented to consume meat, eggs, etc.

See the American Midland Naturalist for more info. Also, national geographic has a blurb on consumption of sea bird by Red deer.

just fyi.

From the webmaster: Thanks for the info. I have no doubt hungry deer will eat anything.

Doe ate meat

I set out some weenies & a doe came by & ate one. I will try to get that on film.

From the webmaster: That would be great. Just shows they will eat anything when they are hungry enough.
