STRAY DOG AND DEER SAY GOODBYE - “Ella was standing right by the van when the dog departed, looking kind of forlorn..”
A stray dog and a deer named Ella became friends, and have spent the last few weeks living together in the Elmwood Cenetery in Missouri.  Unfortunately, due to the coming cold weather, animal control officials had to rescue the dog and leave the deer behind. The dog is now at the Wayside Waifs animal shelter. Ella the deer continues to be a fixture at the cemetery. Read more from kansascity.com:


The dog and the doe, which lives at the historic cemetery, had been constant companions in recent weeks. Cemetery officials and volunteers said it appeared the two misfits had developed a bond.
But while the deer can survive the winter, there was concern that the dog would not.
***
Ella was by the trap when the team from the shelter came to retrieve the dog.
“Ella was standing right by the van when the dog departed, looking kind of forlorn,” said John Weilert, president of the Elmwood Cemetery Society.
Ella was born at Elmwood Cemetery around Memorial Day 2011 and then lost her mother to traffic. She has become a mascot for the cemetery at Truman Road and Van Brunt Boulevard, showing up at weddings and funerals and tagging along on tours…“Am I sorry they found each other? Absolutely not! I believe they became friends to teach us a lesson, however we each might interpret it.”


Hopefully the dog finds a permanent home soon. I’m glad he was able to find a companion in Ella the deer, even if for a short few weeks. Click here for the full story, and here to learn more about Wayside Waifs.

Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe, But this guy has pictures to prove his story…

Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat.
“Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed.

I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I’ve never seen anything quite like it!

“Once on-board, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering. We headed for Taku Harbour. Once we reached the dock, the first 
buck that we had been pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say ‘thank you’ and disappeared into the forest.”

After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help (that’s him in the wheelbarrow).

My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet. We didn’t know how long they had been in the icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive. My daughter later told me that the experience was something that she would never forget, and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!”
