Sad Update to this Morning’s Deer at the Zoo Photo

Zoo Deer 2

From the National Zoo:

“This morning at about 11:40, a keeper heard a commotion from the Cheetah Conservation Station cheetah yard. When the keeper investigated, he found a white-tailed deer on the ground in the exhibit with cheetah siblings Carmelita and Justin. Sadly, the deer was dead. Zoo staff removed the deer from the exhibit by 11:54 a.m. A necropsy report will be conducted to ensure the deer didn’t carry any diseases. Our animal care team will also check the cheetahs, but all signs point to them being unharmed. There were no known witnesses to the incident, but it appears the deer jumped into the enclosure.”
