Newcastle resident Ana Martinez Hueto flew into action when she noticed a deer in her backyard had some sort of wire around its neck Oct. 21.

She called the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Department of Natural Resources, the city of Newcastle, local television stations — anyone who might be able to help the poor animal.

A young deer with wire around its neck visits a backyard in the 14000 block of Southeast 83rd Street.

It took her a while to get a response, Hueto said, but now it appears everyone knows about Bambi, her nickname for the young deer who visits her home in the 14000 block of Southeast 83rd Street.

The deer doesn’t appear to be in any immediate danger, since he’s able to get around easily, but it could turn into something worse, Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Kim Chandler said.

Chandler said the most pressing issue is determining Bambi’s location.

If neighbors see the deer, they are encouraged to call the Department of Fish and Wildlife at 775-1311.
