Bummer for Bambi

Flathead lake is deadly in the winter and this deer found that out. Every Fall the lake is drained to support the spring thaw. This helps prevent flooding in the Flathead Valley. Since Kalispell and the rest of the lake experienced an extremely cold fall this last October with some major snow and ice the lake froze before it was drained closer to the shore. This doe must have gotten her foot stuck in the snow or fallen through the thin ice because come November when the lake went down my family discovered her in front of their cabin. This is what's left of the doe. Gradually more and more of the bones have been disappearing.

It's the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
