One in the same? Maybe - maybe not

A dead deer on a beach in the White Sands-Cape Bear area created some curiosity last Friday. Leah MacDonald was collecting sea glass along the shore when she noticed something floating in the water. After summoning her cousin Derrick MacLeod of Beach Point, they determined it was a dead deer, an animal not native to PEI. Meanwhile David Millar, who lives in the same area, took this photo of a deceased deer washed up on the shore at White Sands, a couple of miles west of Ms MacDonald’s sighting. It is possible the deer was carried by the tide across the Northumberland Strait from neighbouring Nova Scotia about 15 kilometres away. Whether or not it was the same animal will remain a mystery but nature was left to clean up the evidence.
