Funny. Years back a cousin of mine raised a doe in their laundry room that mama abandoned in their front yard. Raised it like a dog and put a bell around its neck. They would let it out in the yard in the morning and it would hang out, then come back in at night. One day it finally wondered off. Figured it got shot when it walked right up to someone wanting to get fed.
