Deer with a Broken Leg

There is a deer with his back leg broken I saw two weeks ago. It was sitting in my backyard but actually ran when I tried to walk over. I saw it again tonight eating. It is limping and the leg is still on but seems backwards. Will he survive or should animal control be called?

FROM WEBMASTER: I think you should call animal control. The poor thing is problably in pain and will have a tough life trying to find food, avoid cars and dogs, etc. I am sure that it can live that way, but will just have a lower quality of life. If you wanted to feed it and keep food out, it would probably stay with you if that is something you would want.

I saw a deer today with a broken leg. Dec 2, 2010.
The deer frequent our yard and we do put some food out for all the animals in the winter. My problem is we also have coyote's running around so I am afraid that it's life will end tragically.
I think it's better to call someone but who??
