Animal researchers examining the partially eaten carcass of a deer found on the campus of UC Davis concluded that the killer was a mountain lion. The deer was one of a research herd of black-tailed deer surrounded by an eight-foot fence in the western section of the campus. There had been three or four sightings of mountain lions, or pumas, on the campus since July. Campus safety director Bern Shanks said. "It's almost unheard of for mountain lions to attack people unprovoked.

The state is not responsible for damage caused by marauding deer, despite a program by the Ohio Natural Resources Department to increase the number of wild deer in Ohio, a court has ruled. The 10th District Ohio Court of Appeals ruled 2 to 1 this week that the state owns wildlife for the benefit of the public. But it rejected a suit by Robert D. Bowers II and Carol Bowers, operators of the Laurelville Fruit Co., seeking $26,558 for damage done by deer.

It was a simple suburban pleasure for Melissa Caven, watching from her Burbank living room as three deer that had wandered down from the nearby Verdugo Mountains grazed in her front yard. Then, to her horror, a man slid from a nearby car with a crossbow. Her scream sent the deer scattering for the hills Sunday, but an arrow killed a fleeing 100-pound doe. It dropped dead in a driveway a block away. The urban hunter is being sought on animal cruelty charges, said Burbank police.

A herd of eight deer seem content to nibble grass along the edge of the runway at the Sea Ranch airstrip, often blocking the path of moving planes. "It's pretty amazing," said pilot Steve Kaplan. "The deer just stand there and watch you roll by, or they prance across the runway, oblivious that something is coming toward them."

Humans and deer long have coexisted peaceably in Sierra Madre Canyon, nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains about 15 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Deer trails there meander through backyards of bohemian cottages and hillside houses. But in the past few months, that relationship has been shattered by the deaths of at least five deer and subsequent protests against a fence that critics say caused those deaths.

A man died after being attacked by a 6-foot-tall deer that he encountered in his backyard, officials said. Ron Dudek, 73, was attacked Sept. 25 when he went outside to pick tomatoes. The buck struck him in the face, ripping a hole in his cheek and ramming an antler into his mouth. He died Monday. The medical examiner's office said an autopsy revealed that the deer's blow had caused a blood clot that went to his lungs and killed him.

County and state animal control officials appeared divided Friday over whether it was a mountain lion that killed a deer in a residential area of Anaheim Hills Thursday. Although Orange County animal control officers did not find any lion droppings or paw prints, they say descriptions by two witnesses and drag marks in the area led them to believe it was a mountain lion. "Only the fur and intestinal tract of the deer were found," said county animal control chief Ron Hudson.
