With Christmas just around the horizon, many stores are bustling at this time of year. In Fort Collins, Colorado, a little gift shop, some unexpected people did come in.
When a young doe entered the store, which is a part of the Horsetooth Inn and RV Park, she seemed to be on a mission to buy some presents for her family. Lori Jones was working her regular shift there. The Dodo was informed by Lori that it was amusing. She was focusing on the chips and the sunglasses. I was giggling hysterically.
After the doe had looked over the merchandise, Lori used a nice bait to entice it outside. But it wasn’t going to end there. About 30 minutes later, the deer and her entire family reappear.
The kids waited outside patiently since they’ve been raised well. They just asked, “Can we come in too?,” as they stood at the doorway. I objected! It was hilarious.
In the end, Lori was able to get the interested family out of her shop, but not before taking some amazing close-up pictures on her phone. This was an uncommonly near encounter, despite the fact that there is a lot of wildlife in and around this picturesque location at the foot of the Rockies, including mountain lions, bighorn sheep, deer, and raccoons.
