Tragic and delicious

Dillie the Deer

It’s Dillie the Deer

This 5-year-old deer was rescued by the lady in the picture, veterinarian Melanie Butera in Ohio, when she was only 3 days old. She was emaciated and had vision problems, and probably wasn’t going to live much longer. So, this crazy cat lady brought the deer home for rehab, and decided to just keep it.

I should stop. When you hear her talk, the vet actually doesn’t sound like quite the crazy cat lady I thought she was going to be. However, she also doesn’t seem to realize that Dillie the Deer will eventually throw herself in front of a car on the interstate. I mean, that’s what deer do.

Dillie wears a GPS collar so she won’t go too far, and probably so people will hesitate before shooting. But how can you blame them? Let’s face it: she does look delicious.

And while the video below is predictably rife with puns and over-enthusiasm, the damned thing is kinda cute.
