 Anyone who has driven along the benches in Cache Valley lately may have noticed what seems to be a growing population of deer roaming the foothills and in some cases, even neighborhoods. ...“The snow drives them out of the mountains in the winter and into our yards to forage. They’ve been doing this for hundreds of years,” said Jake Dinsdale of Hyde Park. “People just need to understand that the deer are going to come down and eat, they’re adapting just like we are.
