A deer was euthanized in La Crescenta early Saturday morning after deputies found it impaled on a residential fence, authorities said. Sheriff's deputies responded to the 6000 block of Canyonside Road about 4:30 a.m., where the deer was found stuck on the fence after apparently attempting to jump it, said Sgt. Booker Hollis of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station. Hollis added that the “medium-sized” deer suffered massive internal and external injuries. “It couldn't move,” Hollis said, adding that the deer was euthanized “so it wouldn't suffer any longer.” -- Alene Tchekmedyian, alene.tchekmedyian@latimes.com Follow on Google+ and on Twitter: @atchek .

A deer was found dead at the Sports Complex in Glendale and authorities believe the animal was killed by an adult mountain lion and an offspring. Community Services and Park personnel found the deer's body this week at 2200 Fern Lane. Mountain lion footprints were found in the area. Glendale police suggest residents take steps to protect children and small pets from mountain lions in the area. Installing ample outdoor lighting, trimming bushes and providing shelter for animals are some way residents can avoid attracting deer or mountain lions, according to police.

Regarding the Sept. 4 picture of the deer with Christmas lights tangled around his head : In no way do I feel that this is a cute picture. Some animal service organization should be able to track that deer down, tranquilize it and take those lights off of his antlers. He has been spotted twice in the 3100 block of Beaudry Terrace. I don't think he would be hard to find. I am hoping some animal group comes to this deer's rescue before he chokes. Again, this picture was not cute.

Robert Nakich (Mailbag, Oct. 24) suggests we kill the deer who are eating his precious plants. How short-sighted! Nakich is the interloper. His house is in deer territory. Suburban sprawl has encroached into wildlife habitat, causing harm to the delicate ecosystem in which we live. Those of us who reside in the hillsides must learn to do so in harmony with nature, or suffer the consequences of a destroyed environment. I suggest Nakich stop whining, consider the world beyond his "property," and take the Fire Department's good advice: Plant shrubs the deer will avoid.

Ben Godar A two-year drought coupled with the recent fires are pushing deer out of the hills and into people's front yards. In the neighborhoods just south of Brand Park, the deer have completely eaten away the ivy from many lawns. Urban Fire Forester Douglas Nickles said they are simply looking for whatever food is available. "They're getting brazen at this point; they're doing what they need to do to survive," he said. While people in the neighborhood said deer have always ventured into their yards, they've never seen a feeding frenzy like is going on now. "They've eaten the ivy, roses, succulents, geraniums; we've got nothing left," Donna Siglar said.

To Mr. Nakich: It is amazing to me, with all that goes on in the world, that you choose to bicker about deer! So they eat your plants and you are too uptight to plant something they won't eat. But it is us who should be thinned out as we overrun the hillsides out of greed and selfishness. We push ourselves into their territory, and then complain. Yes, it is the government's job to defend and protect its citizens -- from terrorists and issues that bring harm to us, not from innocent beings who are not pests, but one of God's beautiful creations.

A deer hit by a car on the freeway Wednesday apparently got up and left, an officer said. A man driving a silver Volkswagen Jetta called 911 to report he hit a deer on the west Ventura (134) Freeway transition to the Glendale (2) Freeway, California Highway Patrol Officer Vince Ramirez said. The man had called back to tell officers that he was leaving the deer on the center divider and would call back to check on the deer's condition, Ramirez said.

Deer struck by pickup in downtown area A deer was struck by a pickup truck in downtown Glendale Wednesday morning and then euthanized hours later because of its injuries, police said. Police received a call about a deer at Central Avenue and Stocker Street at about 7:35 a.m. Wednesday, Glendale Police Officer John Balian said. The deer was weaving in and out of traffic and made its way to Brand Boulevard, when it was hit by a pickup truck, he said. The deer's leg was nearly severed in the crash, but it kept on going, Balian said.

Residents must learn to live with the deer Please, let us learn to live with the deer ("Residents concerned over deer invasion," Wednesday). True, they often consider your garden to be their salad bar. Deer, however, are selective in their eating preferences, while one simply has to figure out just what plants the selection might be. As soon as the green plants begin to be present once more on the hillsides, the deer will not bother your garden. It is important to the environment to not upset the ecology.

I was horrified to read Robert Nakich's letter regarding the deer population in the foothills. According to Mr. Nakich, the best way to keep the deer from munching on landscaping is for the townsfolk to take up their pitchforks and torches and "thin the herds." I have an even better idea: Let's thin the herds of people like Mr. Nakich by relocating them to a congested urban area, where they won't be inconvenienced by nature. Just name the moving day, Mr. Nakich, and I'll help you pack.

Authorities said on Tuesday they have not confirmed whether a dead deer -- the second such find in the canyons of East Glendale recently -- was killed by a mountain lion or coyote. A Glendale resident found the remains of the small deer Tuesday morning in the 3300 block of Dunsmere Road, near Chevy Chase Canyon Park and not far from Fern Lane where, according to police, the first deer was found dead on Dec. 7. “At this point, we have no confirmed sightings of coyotes or mountain lions killing deer,” said Ricky Whitman, spokeswoman for the Pasadena HumaneSociety, which provides animal control services for Glendale.

As a La Cañada resident, I wanted to inform the public of a fundraiser this weekend to help the thirsty and hungry wildlife that have been affected by the Station fire. The Verdugo Hills Archers are stepping up in their annual shootout. Part of the proceeds from the Daze of Verdugo Shoot will help pay for water lines leading to small watering holes for birds and wild animals. Thirsty birds and deer are drinking from the small water bucket at Verdugo Hills Archery range. The bucket is used to catch any dripping water from the one water spigot used by the clubhouse.

They interest almost no one, really, except those who live there or have a parent there — or have some part of that multibillion-dollar investment at the top of Mt. Wilson. The darling deer care, as do the mountain lions, now that their food, what’s being called “the fuel,” is up in smoke. The Station fire in the Crescenta-Cañada Valley started up in eerie competition with another “elite fire” blazing away in Rancho Palos Verdes. It made a brief appearance on the CNN Airport Edition just as I boarded my flight from Boston to LAX, and my mom, waiting for me at our family’s La Crescenta home of 42 years, was eager to get out for some good old-fashioned fire-gawking and to get better information than the TV had to offer.

A pleasure to see this herd here It was a nice surprise to see representatives of our local deer herd on your front page Friday (“From deer to deer”). We often see them grazing on the north side of Day Street, which is an open hillside. Some of us on a local Internet social network called thefoothillsforum.com share photos of them and have dubbed them the “Day Street Gang.” That’s the kind of gang we don’t mind seeing wandering around the neighborhood.

Seeing a country by car or bus is too fast to really experience it, Anneé Deering thought to herself while traveling through Vietnam on a bus when she spent a semester abroad in her senior year of college two years ago. So Deering, now 25 and living in Glendale, resolved that when she returned home, she’d see America in a slower, more personal way: by bike. “A bike is kind of as close a relationship as you can get,” Deering said. Deering and her boyfriend will begin a three-month, 3,000-mile journey across the country next week.

FOOTHILLS — Deer, coyotes, skunks, bobcats, raccoons and even bears — these are just some of the animals city residents might see this summer, even if they don't go on a hike. That's because faced with the choice of hillside vegetation left brittle by an unforgiving drought and the lush, sprinkler-fed buffets in residential yards, more animals this summer may pick the latter, animal control officials say. So keep an even closer eye on Fluffy than usual. And check, even more carefully than usual, before moving that pile of wood.
