You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.
Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff. The most daylight was coming through the railing. Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!
If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted. There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.
I was out there when it happened. I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell. I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths. The others in the house heard it too and came to the door. We were all pretty stunned.
Thats the best I can come up with. I hope you can buy it!
