Camera Critters: Family Fued


Many folks visualize the natural critters as always getting along in peace and harmony but such is not the case.
Animals fight for various reasons and at times the fights result in serious injury and even death. The series that follows is of two yearling deer acting out in a mild dispute, possibly one that involved establishing the pecking order in the herd. This little scrap ended with little more than hurt feelings and some bumps or bruises.












Life in the natural world is a daily struggle for existence and frequent fights among the Critters are a natural part of it.

Gorgeous! So many people think of deer as harmless, gentle creature. I've read that quite a few people are injured every year by muledeer at Yellowstone NP because the deer are pretty tame and people think they are in a petting zoo...

Enjoyable post Coy, pleased that they both escaped unhurt.

Catch the fluttering flags at my place.

Nice post, Coy. It looks like one knows where to get off from the start. That has to hurt too.

Reminds me of the fights my two brothers had while growing up....especially considering your previous post.
