Idaho Fish and Game receives hundreds of calls a year about deer, elk and other wildlife in distress — often because of the intersection between animals and humans. The most common culprits: loose wire, unkempt fences and wrought-iron fence spires, the department says.
You can help by removing items on your property that can hamper the movement of or injure deer, the department says.
