LETTER | Deer in Downtown Kirkland

Dear Editor:

I thought I was hallucinating when this deer walked across Kirkland Ave. in front of me at 7:30 am today and sauntered across the parking lot into the park behind QFC. I saw a deer a few weeks ago cross Central Way and enter the treed clover leaf area on NE 85th and I-405. I've lived here ten years and have never seen a deer once. We came here from San Juan Island and were chasing off deer constantly, as they have voracious appetites for potted flowers,roses and fruit.
