Saw this deer in the back yard yesterday. Looks to be too skinny. Good thing there is plenty of green back there!

Hello Michael,
Your right, this particular deer is certainly in very poor condition. I remember seeing a doe quite a few years ago in West Virginia that looked alot like this one. They had an outbreak of Bluetongue disease which wipped out a large portion of their deer heard. I really doubt if this deer will survive even with all the food available.
A nice photo quality wise!!
