Sika Deer at the Forestry Farm

We are members of the Saskatoon Zoo Society (I think I’ve mentioned this before).  For $60 a year you get free entrance into the zoo (still have to pay parking at the park)…  so for avid zoo goers like ourselves, it just makes sense.  We like to make it out there once a week.  It’s fun to watch all the babies grow throughout the Summer, and even better to watch how active all the animals become in Autumn and Spring.  We even head out there in the middle of Winter when it’s -35.  Yep.  We’re die-hard zoo goers.  LMAO

Anyway…

The last couple of times we’ve got, the Sika Deer have been very interested in their human visitors.  It’s actually a little odd considering how standoffish they normally are.  But we won’t complain, as it’s given Lily-Ann the chance to be very up close and personal with a species she’d never have the chance to otherwise.  So here she is, feeding one of the yearling deer.
