Deer Forest – Enter at own risk!
Zookeeper Duane Reports that the male deer in Deer Forest are starting to shed their velvet (the deer will rub their antlers on trees and rub off the soft outer coating called “velvet” . The antlers may bleed at this time (perfectly normal!). This sparks the beginning of “rut” or mating season. The males will become more aggressive and easily startled. The males are trying to get the female’s attention and show dominance over other males. This means that we may have to close deer forest at some point but for right now we are at “Enter at Your Own Risk”. Please read all signs before you enter. When a deer is startled or being chased they may knock people down (especially small children) in effort to flee. Males have large antlers and sharp hooves that can harm so be very careful… do not approach the males at this time. Keep small children away from the males and let the deer come to you! We ask that everyone make an effort to please stay on the pathway as this is their home.
