OMG I would so have love to have been this woman!
Lori Jones, who works at the gas station at Horsetooth Inn and RV Park in Stout, said she was on duty about three weeks ago when a doe fearlessly wandered into the store. Jones captured photos of the deer browsing the sunglasses and junk food sections.
“I lured her outside with a peanut bar,” Jones said. Jones said it wouldn’t be the last time she saw the doe. Mama deer returned later in the day with her children in tow. OMG! What a blessing! I love deer and this story and photos were just too adorable!
Jones said, “Later, I was in the office checking the store stock,” Jones said. “I walked out and there she was with her twins and a lone buck that she nursed. I just used my phone to snap the pics. I laughed so hard!”
Photos posted to Horsetooth Store & Gas’ official Facebook page show deer have previously dropped by the store – but they normally remain outside.
If you follow the show, you know I love animals. Dogs top my list but deer come in a close second. It’s their eyes that make me melt. I see their eyes and I just know there is so much going on behind them. The photos of this deer family and their actions clearly proves they do indeed know what’s going on. Animals are such a blessing. What a sad world it would be without them. Sigh. ~grace
