I  had an email this week from a reader who spotted two deer crossing Roland Avenue near Lake Avenue at about 10:30 at night. Only a few cars were on the street. Bright lights made the deer easy to spot as they crossed Roland and strolled into yards on the east side of the street.   She wrote trying to reach someone in the neighborhood association for that area. After emailing friends in north Roland Park, I learned these deer were not an unusual occurrence. One friend on St. George's Road said her munched-on garden is proof of their regular prowling.

The first segment of Maryland's muzzleloader deer season will open Oct. 16. The early muzzleloader season will run Oct. 16-18 in Deer Management Regions A and B. Region A consists of Garrett, Allegany and western Washington counties (private land codes 250 & 251), and Region B is the rest of the state. Also in Region B, hunters can kill antlerless-only deer Oct. 20-25. There is a statewide bag limit for antlered deer (bucks) of one per weapon season. Hunters in Region B have the option to take one additional bonus buck after purchasing a bonus antlered deer stamp and killing two antlerless deer.

The Sun's editorial on the rescue of a deer from the Patapsco River was so one-sided and closed-minded, I couldn't believe it ("Oh, deer!" Dec. 21). Whatever happened to compassion for living creatures? Instead, The Sun upheld the fines given to the two men who decided to rescue a deer stuck in the ice — unlike the people whose job it was to do this. I feel the Department of Natural Resources could have made more of an effort, particularly seeing how a pair of deer were rescued in Minnesota.

Note to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service: There are too many deer. And I say this as a softie who loves watching them wander in my yard and who has evolved gardening practices that focus on "deer-resistant" species and a philosophical outlook that accommodates inevitable damage. We've watched the deer and tossed them dried corn and old apples (yes I know feeding the wildlife is frowned upon) since we moved into this recent expansion of our smallish town that is really part of the exurbia of Baltimore.

A TV helicopter buzzing overhead. Baltimore County firefighters and Maryland Natural Resources Police officers on the scene. Defying a police order, two men in an inflatable boat braved the elements on the icy Patapsco River. Last week's much-publicized incident in Linthicum had all the elements of a daring rescue, except the victim was no capsized fisherman or stranded swimmer. It was a deer — as in a wild animal. You know, the kind that live out there , where they take their chances with cold weather and rivers and other of Mother Nature's challenges.

I wholeheartedly applaud the efforts of the deer spaying experiment ( "Loch Raven area becomes test site for deer spaying experiment," Feb. 13). For too long the Band-Aid has been to kill (and the killing never stops, year after year). I suggest this experiment add a tangent: Stop development and removal of habitat. The "overpopulation" is what it is because of humans, not deer. So it is high time we give a little to make it right, and this spaying experiment (which isn't burdening the Maryland taxpayer)

Fe Reyes-Dollete and Roldolfo Dollete's patio container garden grew out of desperation. For 30 years the couple, who are both physicians, tried to grow flowers and vegetables on their suburban property, only to watch deer consume all they grew. Reyes-Dollete recalls one year she managed to grow a particularly beautiful daylily. She went to get her camera to take a picture of it, and when she returned it was gone, eaten by a deer she saw standing in the yard. The couple decided to move their garden to their patio.

Some motorists in the area apparently have had a close encounter with a deer, according to callers to SUNDIAL.Of 445 callers yesterday, 319, or 72 percent, said that they either have struck a deer or have had a close call. Only 126 said they had not."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.@

Maryland hunters have killed considerably more turkeys and deer than this time last year because of better conditions, the Department of Natural Resources said late last week. Hunters completed the early portions of the archery and muzzleloader deer seasons by harvesting 28,023 deer during September and October - 26 percent higher than last year's below-average harvest of 22,283 for the period. Last year's low harvest was attributable to an abundant acorn crop, which resulted in deer moving less in search of food, the DNR said.

The big problem for Howard County with deer, and to a host of places in the United States, has, unfortunately, human causes. For Howard, it is the elimination of farm and graze land in the eastern part of the county; the central and western part of our area have not encountered this as much yet. As we denude more and more land, eliminate more farms to put up more houses and shopping centers, create more roads for an ever-increasing population, there...

Archery hunting for white-tailed deer opened statewide Friday and continues through Jan. 31. New this year, hunters in Region A may take only two antlerless deer for the license year. Also new, a hunter may not harvest more than two white-tailed deer within the yearly bag limit that have two or fewer points on each antler present. Any additional antlered deer taken within the legal seasons and bag limits must have at least three points on one antler. Junior Hunting License holders are exempt from the antler point restriction.

Living in the city does not mean living without wildlife. We have plenty of it in Roland Park. The hills and green space, as well as the water at Stony Run and the Jones Falls, provide suitable habitat for many critters. On a recent cool evening, my husband and I sat outside eating dinner. Our table is less than 15 feet from the roaring interstate that is Cold Spring Lane. We noticed fireflies for the first time this season, blinking low over the grass. Nothing unusual about that, although they were a welcome sign of summer's arrival.

For as long as anyone can remember, wild orchids have rewarded sharp-eyed hikers in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains with pink, yellow and white blooms peeping from the forest floor. But these "secret beauties," as one researcher dubbed them, are vanishing at an alarming rate, likely devoured by a horde of deer feeding on every leaf and shoot they can reach, according to a new study. "Deer are like lawnmowers when they get going in a forest," said J. Mel Poole, the superintendent of Catoctin Mountain Park in Thurmont.

Arguing their safe access to public lands is threatened, birders are making a last-ditch appeal to Gov. Martin O'Malley to veto legislation that would expand hunting on Sundays in western Maryland. The Maryland Ornithological Society joined horse lovers in opposing two bills that would authorize hunting deer and other game on private and public lands in Garrett, Allegany, Washington and Frederick counties. The General Assembly overwhelmingly passed both measures, sponsored by western Maryland lawmakers, on the final day of the legislative session April 7. The Maryland Horse Council , representing horseback riders, had testified against the bills during the 90-day legislative session.

The owner of two dogs that chased deer into an Anne Arundel County school and caused thousands of dollars in damage has been cited by Animal Control. Alice McCormick of Lothian was issued 11 citations for the two dogs, including allowing dogs to run free without tags, failing to get required vaccinations, creating a public nuisance and letting dogs run loose on school grounds, said Robin Catlett, director of animal control for Anne Arundel. One of the dogs was cited for being a public safety threat for "approaching a person in an attitude of attack.

When is the value of the life of one animal not the same as that of another animal? I guess it is when one is a dog and one is a deer. Apparently it is "the right thing to do" according to one rescuer and "it would have been the wrong thing for anyone to turn their back" according to another rescuer, when talking about the rescue of a dog who ended up in the water in the Inner Harbor ( "Baltimore Police officers rescue dog from Inner Harbor," ...

Students at two southern Anne Arundel County schools had the day off Monday after deer and dogs tore through the building, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. On Monday morning, three deer jumped through glass doors at Southern Middle School, which also houses students from nearby Lothian Elementary, which is under construction. The deer were followed by a pair of dogs, said Bob Mosier, a school system spokesman. Anne Arundel County police responded to the school after the alarm went off shortly before 4 a.m., said Lt. T.J. Smith, a police spokesman.
