Building a snowman is one of the best activities to do with family or friends in the winter! Rolling the body together, figuring out how to make the eyes, nose and the smile is something everyone should try at least once in their lifetime. These children did it, they built their snowman and were satisfied with the result. However, they didn’t expect a strange passerby to ruin what they were happily making.
It is known that deer love to digest all types of vegetables like beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, soybeans, wheat, and pumpkins. During the winter season, food becomes scarcer for a deer and the energy requirements tend to increase as the deer must keep warm so they’ll eat on anything that seems fresh and is readily available. Farmers all around the country reported deer in their area sneaking a few chomps of their crops and enjoying the free buffet. This type of vegetable-nabbing behavior is explained further by the Sciencing website. Fresh crops are an important part of a deer’s diet and stumbling on a garden or commercial farm is like a goldmine for these foragers! So when this little deer distinguishes smell of a tasty carrot coming from across the way, she goes to investigate right away.
Mom films in disbelief as the deer curiously walks up to the snowman her kids just built and takes a big chomp out of the snow. However, this wasn’t the tasty smell she sniffed out! she looks at the top of the snowman’s head and finds what she’s exactly came, a big group of carrots – bingo! She quickly clears off the carrots and moves back down to the rest of the snowman. Strangely enough, the deer takes things further and nibbles on the snow! This is the weirdest thing Mom has ever seen and it’s going to be a challenge explaining the demise of the snowman to her little ones!
