Oh Deer

Deer and two fawns removed after taking up residence in Chicago courtyard.

The doe and two fawns that made their urban home in Chicago's Boystown neighborhood last week are about to be forced out.

Animal Control says it needs to move the three deer after area residents began feeding the babies milk from bottles and organic apples from Whole Foods.

Officials have said that feeding the deer could be harmful to the animals' health and to the person feeding them if the doe returns to find them too close to her babies.

Animal Control has been monitoring the deer since they moved into their new living quarters behind an apartment building and previously said they would leave the animals alone unless they pose a threat or were injured.
