Putting my beliefs into practise
« on: November 09, 2011, 10:48:36 AM »

I am an Animist. A person that respects nature, connects with the energy in all things and can connect with the creatures in nature.
Last night a young deer, maybe 10 - 12 months old, was hit by a car. While it has no broken bones that I can find, it has a very brused hip. We put it my back yard (6 foot fense) so it's safe from dogs and notified the SPCA that it's there. They're fine with it as there are SOOOOOO many deer in the area and lack of funding, they can't really do much except put it down.
This morning, it's slowly walking around and recovering nicely.

I go out and make it stand and walk to loosen it's muscles etc. It doesn't seem to fused by me and actually followed me around the yard for a while. My wife goes out and before she comes down the stairs, it's moving away for a safer spot.

We'll let her stay in the yard until she's steady on her feet then open the gate and let her go.

Grand kids have named her Lucky. Just need to be sure no "bond" form and she becomes a tame deer.
I don't mind deer sleeping in the yard or flower beds as it's a safe place, but they need to stay wild.

I am always impressed when people do things like this. 

My brother was only about 12 or so and found some abandoned baby ducks on the lake they lived on at the time.  He maintained a nest they had and nursed them until they moved out on their own.  I was dumbfounded when I heard about it, as was my father who witnessed the whole thing.

A deer is a much larger, more difficult to manage creature.  It sounds like things are going well.  Best wishes. ;D

dark magus, I had a really splendid opportunity this past year.  I was on my way home from my sisters house, and a truck had just hit a momma dear. before i got the car off the road, to go check her out, the baby was on it's way out.  So I got the little thing, tied off it's chord with my shoestring, took of my shirt, wrapped her up and checked out the mother.  The Mother was dead by that point.  The baby sustained damaged too.  I'm in the boonie cowtown, and there was a discrepency on the lotted amount of time one could keep a little dear. So I ended up keeping her for 5 months.  My Native name is Little Fawn in english.  Things in my house since last Dec when my father died, have been world war 3.  Having the little Deer here, was amazing.  She played with the dogs, donkeys, llamas, goats, everything.  At night she enjoyed sleeping with my cat, in a burror I made for her in the room.  Several nights I woke up and she found her way into my bed.   :o I think cuz things were so hard at times, she found her way into my Mom's too and she wasn't kicked out.   ;)  The accident left her blind in one eye but now she's a main attraction at a zoo near by.  I've had alot of wild pets, especially growing up on the reservation, but this is the first time, I had such a priveledge out here.  She was a sheer joy, her softness and gentleness, were wonderful gifts during this time. amazing how much these little creatures can offer us!

As an up date, yesterday, I couldn't find her in the yard. After some time I spotted her in the yard next door. Must have crawled under the fence as she can't jump it.
Any way....after chasing her around for 5 minutes trying to corner her, it dawned on me that she was in fairly good condition.
So I opened the gate and now she's free.
Legs still stiff but that should work out in time.

I was always in trouble with my Grandfather.  I brought home 2 bear cubs once, and he went off his nut! hehe.... but after he started feeding them... they were his.  Another time I found 3 lynx  kittens while I was out picking herbs.  Yep you guessed it.  I had an eagle once, she had a broken wing, but as soon as she was mended, She was free to go. (same with the others.)
I brought home a baby skunk.........and I think that's where he started drawing the line.  :-p

Hey Dark Magus,

I did it, woo hoo.  There's my little girl.  My brother is mentally handicapped, since birth.  But I let him name  her.  So of course, her name is Bambi.  *giggles.*

And this is actually me, in my full dress, before the silver jingle dance.


I like that, and the shaw dance.

They don't look that good even doing the juingle dance up here,  8)

I've always liked the spirit dance, where all male dancers wear the "skin" of their totum animal. Be it Grouse, Wolf, Badger, Buffalo, the way these animals are interprited in costum, the step of the dancer attempting to move like the totum animal.

It's been a while since I've been to a Pow Wow.

I haven't been to a spirit dance in a long time.  I was always in the deer dance back in the days when I was a wee one. lol

That was a beautiful anecdote. I'm trying very hard to show a respect for all forms of life. However, I'm arachanophobic so spiders spefically are hard for me. I've mangaged to over come these tiny water spiders that climb out of the sink in my bathroom. When I find them I pick them up which isn't an easy task as they jump but I've found if I put my hand in the sink and hold it still. They eventually jump on it. Then I carry them outside and set them free.  But two days ago I was getting ready to take a shower and a different kind of spider appeared out of nowhere and frightened I killed him or her. I keep hearing these little screams in my head when I think about it. I feel like it's the spider's death screams. I feel horribly guilty.
