Deer Walks Into Store To Check Their Goods, Comes Back Later With Her Kids

It’s a busy time of year for many shops with Christmas just around the corner. This small gift shop in Fort Collins, Colorado got some rather unexpected customers however.

Lori Jones was working her usual shift at the shop, part of the Horsetooth Inn and RV Park, when a young doe casually walked in as if on a mission to pick out some gifts for her family. “It was hilarious,” Lori told The Dodo. “She was looking at the sunglasses and the chips. I was laughing so hard.”

Having perused the goods on offer, the doe was lured out of the store by Lori using something tasty. But that wasn’t to be the end of it. “About 30 minutes later, here comes the deer again with her whole family.”

Well raised as they are, the children waited outside patiently. “They were just looking in the doorway like, ‘Can we come in too?’ I said, No! It was so funny.”

Eventually Lori managed to lure the curious family away from her store, but not before snapping some incredible close up pics with her phone. While there is plenty of wildlife around this beautiful area at the foot of the Rockies with mountain lions, bighorn sheep, deer and raccoons amongst others, this was an unusually close encounter!

I live right by there and sadly the people in that area (not the store) feed the deer so they are too tame. Animal control keeps issuing warnings but to no avail. It is dangerous for the deer, can cause the spread of diseases between the deer and is against the law in Colorado. The deer are naturally curious but this happened because the deer have become too tame from being fed. Cute but that is the rest of the story.

If only humans didn't multiply like cockroaches the deers and all the rest of forest animals could live in peace.
