Received via text last night just before all the weather havoc:

Hi from Pigeon Point… just had a Buck sighting in our backyard that borders the Duwamish Greenbelt near Pathfinder K-8…. wanted to share; he’s heading East back into the greenbelt at this time.

Last deer sighting we heard about was more than two years ago; that in turn was almost a year after a few weeks of sightings of a deer eventually dubbed Westley – last seen heading into South King County.

    I’m afraid we will be seeing more and more sightings of this sort of wildlife due to their “spaces” being taken over by concrete and housing.

    Stay safe, Westley! And drivers, PLEASE be careful!

    Do we know for sure whether this is the deer that visited West Seattle about three years back?

      No idea. As linked in the story, there was that one in 2016, and a sighting of a deer in 2017.

    “Mans” natural habitat tends to coincide with women’s natural habitat- which is everywhere, unfortunately.  The human penchant for overbreeding is choking out most other forms of life on the planet.

Sorry, comment time is over.
