VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A Victorville woman had a very unusual experience earlier this week when she encountered a deer wearing a collar running around her Eagle Ranch neighborhood.
On Monday, November 4, 2019, VVNG member Melinda Granados, posted about the incident and said, “imagine me calling 911 to report a reindeer running around my neighborhood…early Christmas story.”
Her neighborhood is located within the Eagle Ranch community near Hartfield and Crossroads Ct, off Bear Valley Road in Victorville.
Melinda said the deer’s owner lived about a block away. “He found him when he was little and raised him with his pitbull,” she said.
The deer was safely captured and taken by animal control officers. Melinda said she asked a lot of questions and was informed the deer would be going to a much better place in Big Bear.
Cindy Yazzie commented and said, “this was a few houses down from us, we were shocked to see a deer 🦌 walking around the neighborhood.”
Some people noted the deer was not really afraid of people.
“What the heck are some people thinking! Cute little fawn will grow up! Not a pet and fooling yourself thinking you can domesticate a wild animal! Poor deer suffers for stupid people,” commented Pegi Sohm.
According to CA state law, it is illegal to have a deer as a pet and are considered to be wildlife.
The California Fish and Game Code makes it a misdemeanor to keep as a pet any animal that is endangered or which the department considers a threat to public health and safety or to native fish, wildlife, or agriculture.
