Turning her back on the deer issue
Ellen Lange of Roanoke Avenue was outside her home when a young buck followed the mailman onto her yard. The youngster walked right up to her and began noshing on the bushes next to the garage. “He actually licked my hand,” she said. After a leafy lunch, the deer sauntered off into the Hills and Dales area.
