Say hello to these mule deer:
They’re cute-looking creatures, aren’t they? This is a photo taken years back, somewhere in Montana.
I mention them today because of their fascinating migration story, which evoked emotions akin to when I first heard about the penguin’s story.
These deer spend several months travelling across 150 miles via the Red Desert-to-Hoback route. Right now, the route is surprisingly clear from any human obstruction but that can well change – part of the trek includes a single path, with a land that is currently for sale.
Fortunately, the Conservation Fund has purchased that land to preserve it but it will take months more of observation and tracking to be able to fully preserve this route.
