Just the other day, I was contemplating what a confusing time of year this must be for the deer community. In areas where deer populations are large, people are busy putting up reindeer decorations for Christmas, resulting in what I imagine to be a lot of deer confusion. “Why now,” the deer must think to themselves. “Why are they building effigies to us *now*? And why does one of us have a red nose?” This video proves that my suspicions are correct: Deer definitely notice our Christmas reindeer decorations, and they are definitely, without a doubt, confused as hell. Take a look at the video below — you can’t help but feel bad for this little guy.
