Do deer harm people or property?
Though they are usually timid animals, some larger deer species can harm people if they feel threatened. Automobile accidents occur with frequency when deer and human territories overlap. Deer also endanger humans by carrying various parasites, including ticks. Ticks are known carriers of the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.
Additionally, male deer rub their antlers against trees, which can result in costly damages. For instance, such rubbing may cause vineyard trees to collapse or die, causing a loss in profit.
