SallyAnne, The first day when we took over the house, DH and I walked to the shore and Precious was laying in a fern bed next to the path. He got up as we got close and we both expected him to bolt. Instead he came up to me and started licking my hands. I patted him and he started following me around. His Mama had been killed on the highway. He spent the summer with me and I gave him fruit and veg and occasionally bread and brushed him. He got very bold and even tried to come in the front door. He would come onto the porch and stick his head in through the open window and ask for apples. And yes, he would steal your food right out of your hand. At one point he went missing and came back a week later missing an antler. I treated the broken nub and made sure he had fresh water and fruit. As he became an adult, he got more aggressive and dangerous. Eventually, a neighbor complained and the game wardens came to relocate him. Easiest catch ever. They just held out an apple and lured him into the trailer.
