Deer helps himself to a delicious snack in this family's yard

Midwest winters are harsh and challenging for all animals. Wild animals in particular must be resourceful in finding food and water during the deep winter months. With temperatures often well below zero and snow on the ground, that isn't an easy task.
Deer often appear on families' properties as they look for food. Although farmers see deer as nuisances that eat their crops, the deer need to survive, too. One doe took an unusual approach to finding a meal during a snowy winter day.

When the doe first encountered a snowman, she wasn't quite sure what to make of it. She was a bit wary of the mound of snow. But then she smelled the carrot that made up the snowman's nose.
Emboldened, the deer gave the snowman's nose a sniff and it fell off its face. She quickly nibbled that carrot, then made an exciting discovery: The snowman's hair was made of carrots, too.
Soon after, another deer appeared on the scene, but the doe wasn't done. Rather than leave the snowman without hair and without a nose, she decided to destroy him entirely. Perhaps she was looking for more carrots? Either way, her antics caught on video have quickly gone viral.
