Very informative article - I am aware of this elevated fear response with the deer, too, and am trying to slowly teach them that I can be trusted. The doe is hyper sensitive to movement and sound, especially when something like a camera is pointed her way. No doubt with the hunters around, the deer have been taught by example, to stay away from people. I notice that the fawns mimic mom's every move, and so learn the same 'values'.

Whatever . . . I've seen Temple Grandin featured before on documentaries and she is quite extraordinary. The idea of listening to and taking seriously what autistic (and other personality types operating on the margins of the "normal") men and women make of our shared world has to be a positive development. It's like being given a new scientific instrument that opens up a whole new vista. Both of you but Curtis had just started the thread with a question but it is for you too if you find it interesting and relevant. And yes, a new "instrument" possibly capable of different perception that isn't on the order of psychic or those who sell themselves as "animal communicators". ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : I just found this and thought you could give it a skim.
