“Can they run? Are they dangerous?” OK, deer don’t talk per se. Do you ever wonder how animal parents teach their offspring how to survive? The young learn a lot by just watching their mother and doing what she does. That makes it relatively easy to learn what to eat. Taste also informs them. But what about things like the first time they see a coyote or us? Is it pure instinct to go on alert? I think so. But I also know deer can vocalize. I’ve heard it. I know they also stamp their hooves when they are alerted to danger. I’ve seen that. I wonder what other ways a doe communicates with her offspring.
