Thread: Petrified roe deer?

    Petrified roe deer?

    There was an interesting case over here recently of a roe doe stood stock still in a field, not moving even when hunters approached it. It seems they were close enough that they could and did touch it and it still didn't run away.

    Anyone here heard of anything similar?

    Here is a link to a Google translated/butchered article about it:

    I had one a while ago which was totally blind and deaf, you could walk right up to it and touch it, I did the decent thing as it was somewhere where it would have rapidly become dog fodder, although it was at work and I didn't have a gun.......
    She was otherwise healthy and feeding fine but clearly not behaving right.
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Remember walking up to a Roe doe a few years ago in an orchard.
    She looked odd as she swayed around. She was pi$$ed on apples.
    When she finally worked out i was there she ran, fell over got up an decided that walking away was a better option.
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama
