    Plastic is a common killer of deer. Bailing string, shade cloth, plastic bags, shotgun wads, etc. It often forms into balls in the rumen which the deer cant regurgitate, they then die slowly from starvation. It's worth looking into the rumen of any poorly looking deer to see if plastic was the cause.
