  • Buck Deer

    Wildlife

    The residents of Dinosaur love the deer that are a big part of our community. Be aware, especially in the winter months, that these magnificent animals do come down into town regularly. Please do not feed the animals and be sure to slow down as you travel through town. This way, you are sure to keep both yourself and them safe.
