Meah Alimi, 10, of Woodruff had something interesting to share with The Lakeland Times recently.

“We got pictures of a three-legged deer,” she said.

The deer recently began showing up around their home on Birch Street.

“The second time it came around – it’s always with a pack of deer – we decided to take some pictures of it,” Meah said.

Meah took the photos.

She said the three-legged deer gets around “pretty good.”

“[The deer] just walks up and down the street,” Meah said.

The injured doe is not a loner.

“They kind of always just stay in a pack,” Meah said.

“[Meah] said she thinks the other deer are looking out for her; kind of helping her,” Meah’s grandpa, Dale Wiesbrock said.

The deer looks pretty healthy and no other injuries are apparent. The doe limps a bit.

Meah enjoys time spent with camera in hand. She said she’d like to get into photography some day.
