Call of the wild



HERD ABOUT THIS?—Susi Manners, an amateur photographer and head of the Malibu Association of Realtors, said she was driving home from work March 20 when she saw this amazing herd of deer feeding by the road near Westlake Lake. She stopped, approached within 6 feet of the deer and took a photo with her cellphone. “Quite a moment,” Manners told The Acorn. We agree. A healthy deer population is important as the animals provide about 90 percent of the diet for mountain lions.
