Why do Pennsylvania deer die? June 24, 2012 Republican Herald

Some of the collared deer have dispersed more than five miles from where they were trapped, which is not unusual. Only does were fitted with collars because the necks of bucks expand during the rut, but some of them received ear transmitters."
