This deer had been hanging out in the yard for awhile, but on this day, she did not look well.  We noticed that when she came to take a drink out of the bird bath, she had a runny nose and just did not look well.  We called many NJ rescue groups to request assistance and advice as to how we could help this poor doe, unfortunately, there was nothing they could do.  We had to let nature take its course.

That evening, she sought refuge under the deck and she died the next morning (after kicking out in a death thrall and breaking the basement window, which has now been fixed thanks to Basking Ridge Mirror & Glass.)

Well, now what?  We found a guy who removes deer carcasses from yards and he came the next day to bag and remove the deer.  He was responsive and extremely pleasant.  Should you find yourself in need of his services, just give him a call.  His name is Raul Soto, and his company is called "All Stages Pest Control".

Sad to know about the death of that innocent animal, it should not be die in that way. We should take some precautionary measures to prevent from those type of incidents.


What was the cause of this tragedy?

We have the same situation here. We have our portable lap pool in our backyard. Then there was this moose who suddenly came out of nowhere. The moose took a sip at the pool and ate some of my garden plants. Then after a few hours the moose suddenly began walking sideways like it was feeling dizzy, then it just fell to the ground. I started to panic because I didn't know what to do because I want to save it because it is still twitching. I called the local ranger to inform him about the moose in our back yard, I didn't call the Pest control because I have little confidence that they might have a hard time picking up the dead moose. The ranger called his team and in just a matter of minutes the moose was gone.

It's so sad...I don't like to read such stories. I feel depressed right now.
