    Deer do not eat other animals, they are vegetarians.

              Deer are browsers and strictly plant eaters.

                I once seen an article it was either Field and Stream or outdoor life that had pictures of whitetail robbing bird nest. It was an old article probably the early 90's Maybe someone else on the board remembers. It said when times get tough and they are deprived of protein the will eat bird eggs. (I dont know though)

                      Augusto The is an National Georaphic article of red deer eating birds as well as sheep eating birds. They also mention cows seeking out and chewing on bones. They think this is from a calcium defincency(sp) Here is the link. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2003/08/0825_030825_carnivorousdeer.html

                          no deer are strictly vegetarians ... only grass and grain and even in the winter they will eat bark from trees ... and for all the people on here that make smart comments and calling names ... are you a biologist ???

                            No they don't. Don't look at a picture and put a thousand words into it. I also agree with gossy and bowhunter, don't call foolish names for a question, that's just not right.

                              Deer primarily eat grasses and grains however I have watched documentaries of deer actually eating fish kill. It was explained that the deer had a protein deficiency. I would guess survival instinct kicks in and an animal will do whatever they can to survive.
