Deer Living In B.C. Home Has To Go, Officials Demand

The B.C. owner of a domesticated deer that likes to eat cookies, watch TV and dance to rock and roll says provincial officials are once again demanding she turn the animal loose.

The black-tailed deer has been living inside Janet Schwartz’s home in the Vancouver Island town of Ucluelet since it was a fawn, and Schwartz is refusing to force the 10-year-old animal out.

Schwartz said she and the deer, which she’s named Bimbo, have been living happily since provincial officials backed off when the story first hit the media in August 2009.

“She’s still living in the house, she still sleeps on the bed and she still loves Elvis Presley,” Schwartz told CBC News.

But on Tuesday, environmental officers were back.
