Notice: Test mode is enabled. While in test mode no live donations are processed.
Species: Mule Deer
Beatrix was brought to CALM after a run in with a dog. Unfortunately, the dog pulled her away from her momma and she sustained injuries to her abdomen. After some much needed rest and care, it was decided that Beatrix would be part of our CALM family. Beatrix is as sassy as they come and loves interacting with our other mule deer Otis, Radar and her bestie Juniper.
Within days of Beatrix’ arrival, Juniper came to CALM. Her momma had been struck by a car. Juniper fit right into CALM and is a confident, spunky doe. Although her name is Juniper, some staff nicknamed her laces because she was obsessed with going after people’s shoe laces! Both Beatrix and Juniper were raised by our keeper staff and are such a joy to the public!
Habitat: mule deer are only found on the western Great Plains, the Rocky Mountains, the southwest United States, and on the west coast of North America. Mule deer have also been introduced to Argentina and Kauai, Hawaii.
Diet: At CALM, mule deer eat a variety of grains, hay, fruits and vegetables and browse. Beatrix and Juniper love apples and can often be seen sharing their food bowls with some of our pesky squirrels.
