This doe and her fawn have taken up this woman’s property. Any time she walks out side, the doe immediately charges the woman. Last year, this doe did the same thing. There is an easy solution to the problem, but the woman won’t allow it because she is ‘an animal lover’.
A Mentor-on-the-Lake woman barely escapes serious injury after a deer goes on the attack.
Cindy Frost first noticed the doe and her baby fawn on her Salida Road property about two weeks ago.
Since then she says, she has tried to steer clear of the animals, but the mama deer won’t leave Cindy alone.
“I feel like I’m a prisoner,” said Cindy, “I can’t take my dogs out for a walk; I can’t even walk down to the end of my property and when I go to my car I’m looking all around.”
Her fears are justified. The same deer stomped and injured her neighbor’s Golden Retriever last year.
Now she keeps charging after Cindy.
The interactions are becoming so frequent, Fox 8 News reporter Suzanne Stratford and videographer Doug Herrmann caught the deer staring down Cindy Wednesday night, but that’s nothing compared to the unprovoked incident last Thursday.
While Cindy was taking her dogs out to use the bathroom the deer became extremely aggressive, reared up and then ran after her.
She says they told her the deer should move on in a couple of weeks, but if the animal’s behavior continues both mom and baby might have to be euthanized.
“I don’t want that; I’m an animal lover,” said Cindy.
