Oh, Deer! with Rhiannon Kirton

Published on: 29th December, 2021

Deer. They’re everywhere. And our relationship with them is, well, complicated.

Some of us love to look at them, take pictures of them, have them around.

Some people hunt them for sport or for food.

Some only see them as Bambi

Some hit them with their cars…accidentally of course.

Some want them as far away from their yards, crops, or gardens as possible.

Love them or hate them, they’re here to stay. But how much do we actually know about them?

That’s what today’s show is about. Deer. Everything from antler to tail. Starting with, what makes a deer a deer.

Today's guest is Rhiannon Kirton (@Rhiannon_Kirton). She’s a Master's student studying deer, soon to be done and undoubtedly moving on to bigger and better things, and she’s worked in the US, Canada, and Australia. She’s also the co-founder of Black Mammologists Week!
