A Deer Trapped in a Backyard in the Annex in Toronto


direct link: A Deer Trapped in a Backayrd in the Annex in Toronto

A frightened, lost deer leapt over a fence into a neighbour's back yard around 6am yesterday. A fellow walking his dog saw the deer leap (you can hear his voice in the video, which was taken near sunset).

The deer was there all day, and may be hiding under a bush in the downpour of the evening.

Animal Control said to leave the deer, that it will find its way out the way it came in.

My neighbours are quite alarmed, but waiting to see what happens, and what to do next.

We live in the Annex in Toronto, a downtown neighbourhood.

The deer is scared, as I realized when I was taking this video, and so hid myself from her, but he or she is also simply magical.

A magical visitor.

It poured heavily last night, and I worried about whether the deer had any shelter, how it was doing. In the morning, it appeared to be gone from my neighbour's backyard, though I haven't seen them to ask what happened.

James Kalin on G+ said it was probably a juvenile male with rudimentary horns.

An elegant animal, and an extremely unusual sight in the density of an inner city.

    What an incredible little face on her. I peeked before I left your place. Wild and unusual

    1. Yes, after he nearly jumped the fence when I was standing on a small step stool (yes, I brought one out!), I ducked down. He wasn't scared anymore, and he came out and stared at the little video camera poking over the fence. The close-up is quite lovely, I thought.

      The cops told my neighbour, who I talked to this morning, that deer in the city know their way around. This was a young one, though. Photos were on City TV even! By dawn of the night that had stormed, he was gone. Likely went out the way he came and went home, wherever that is (thinking the St Clair ravine).
