Downtown deer

They’ve moved in like they own the place, raising their offspring, eating our gardens and harassing our pets. One thing is certain: They’re not going anywhere.
Lindsay Lemons had to shoo off a deer after it showed a keen interest in Zoey, a 9-year-old English bulldog she and Dan Smith were walking on a recent Saturday morning near Rotary Park. “(Zoey) likes to chase after them sometimes, but that one was not scared. I was surprised,” Lemons said.
Resident deer have called Durango home for generations.
Spring arrivals forage in an Animas City neighborhood. Some residents say downtown Durango’s swelling deer population has adopted an attitude of open defiance, if not disdain, for people and property, law and order.
