Posted May 05, 2018 07:01:46 The state’s forests are dying faster than anyone has imagined.
And they’re all linked, experts say.
In fact, experts believe deer are dying on Florida wildlife reserves at a rate that is twice the national average.
That’s a startling statistic given the millions of deer and elk that roam our state.
But the truth is, the cause of this death toll is unknown, experts said.
Why Deer Are Dying in Florida’s Forests The state forests in Florida are a natural refuge for deer and other wildlife.
They are a popular wildlife habitat, and many deer migrate to the mountains to nest, but many other animals in the state also need a place to live and hunt.
In fact, in the Everglade National Park, more than 100 species of animals are listed as threatened with extinction.
Forests are a huge asset for the state, with the vast majority of the state’s timber supply being used for agriculture and logging.
It is estimated that nearly 1.5 million acres of Florida forests were logged last year.
But deer and coyotes are not the only predators in the forest.
It’s been estimated that a third of the deer in the forests of Florida are poisoned.
Deer have also been found to be infected with Lyme disease.
And in the past decade, a new disease has emerged, Lyme disease-like symptoms and a lack of protection.
“There’s a lot of fear,” said David Dabrowski, a wildlife biologist with the state Department of Natural Resources and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The disease is not a new one.
It first appeared in the Northeast in 2000 and has since spread to other parts of the country.
The first confirmed cases were reported in Florida in 2010.
Dabrowsky said that many people are afraid of deer because of the threat they pose to wildlife, but that they should also be aware of the fact that the deer are not aggressive, and they do not feed on people.
This is a dangerous situation, he said.
“We don’t need to kill them just because we can’t,” Dabramski said.
“The disease and the lack of protective measures, that is why deer are so dangerous.”
What’s behind Florida’s Deer Deaths?
Deer have long been a target of the hunters who come to Florida for hunting.
In some cases, hunters are using their guns to kill deer that are grazing in the open, and in other cases, the hunters are shooting deer that have been injured and are on their way to a feed station.
Florida’s deer population has grown from an estimated 10,000 in 1998 to more than 200,000 today.
But while Florida has seen an increase in the number of deer since the 1950s, the number has also declined dramatically in the last 15 years, Dabunski said, due to a variety of factors.
What are the major deer killers?
There are three major threats to the deer population in Florida: The introduction of exotic and disease-resistant deer species, which are difficult to control, like the European lynx.
Coyotes and feral cats are also a threat to deer.
Hunters are also responsible for the killing of wild deer by shooting them with bows and arrows and hunting them at night.
Dabrowkski said that these are just two of the many factors that could contribute to the decline of Florida’s deer populations.
Are there ways to prevent deer deaths?
While there is no specific plan for controlling deer, the state has been working to reduce the population of deer in its forests.
There are a number of ways hunters can help save deer: Be aware of your surroundings, including the animals around you.
Take precautions when hunting.
Keep a close eye on your deer.
Make sure they’re not coming in contact with other deer.
Do not approach or approach a deer that is already on the ground.
Do not approach a coyote or a feral cat.
If you encounter one, do not approach it, and instead run away from it.
Learn how to identify the signs of a disease-resistance deer, such as ticks and fangs.
If you are unsure if a deer is infected with the Lyme disease, get the animal tested.
Be careful about where you hunt.
Deer are not always easy to spot in the woods.
It’s best to follow the tracks and the trail to find the deer, Dabski said with a laugh.
Don’t let the deer near you.
Deer can be a problem in many areas of the Evergreens.
Dabsrowski said deer can easily be attracted to human traffic and can even make it past your windshield.
When you find a deer, be aware that it is not safe to kill it, he added.
Protect your pets.
