Deer in residential areas in Sheridan County certainly isn't something new, but an increase in incidents involving deer harming dogs is something that has the attention of the local Game and Fish Office. Game and Fish Information Specialist Warren Mischke.

Removing food sources from your backyard is one way to keep the deer away from your dogs, but confrontations may be inevitable due to the high deer population in town.

Mischke says that the behavior of deer can change from day to day and that aside from not feeding the deer, the most people can do to try to avoid dangerous incidents is to keep an eye on their dog when they are out in the backyard.
