Did You Know?

Mule Deer, Doe, standing in a meadow

Mule Deer lack the digestive juices of omnivores or carnivores, and rely on enzymes present in green plant material to digest their food. Feeding deer picnic fare causes hyper-enlargement of their pancreas, and can result in death. Please do not feed wildlife!
