Why did the deer cross the road?
To get to the other side, apparently.
A trio of deer crossed Bakerview Road (near the T-mobile call center) back and forth at least three times in the span of twenty minutes today in Bellingham‘s Meridian neighborhood. They crossed the road, ate some grass, and then crossed back again, only to return a few minutes later. Drivers like this one were kind enough to stop to allow the deer to cross safely, as other drivers and pedestrians alike stopped to watch.
Our proximity to nature is a wonderful part of living in the Pacific Northwest, but please keep an eye out for our woodland friends as you drive around Whatcom County — especially in the evening hours!
