When deer go bad

Tammy Emery used to think of deer as sweet and adorable, like Bambi. An encounter with a hard-charging doe changed that. The 31-year-old secretary was among at least seven people threatened or injured by female deer last year on Southern Illinois University’s campus _ attacks that have prompted the school to wage a safety campaign during this spring’s fawning season.

The attacks in the woods at the 20,000-student university have been attributed to a combination of protective motherly instinct, squeezed habitat and, in some cases, a little too much human curiosity.

The message now: Keep your eyes peeled for deer, don’t approach them, and if a wild-eyed deer starts bounding your way, run.

No doubt soon we’ll hear tales of huge flocks of soiled Bambies, running about infringing our personal freedoms.
