Deer protecting young

I do not know how big the dog is but from the photo it looks quite large

Another aggressive deer story (Agressive deer chases woman, News Aug. 24), and for the person involved it must have been quite scary.

But let’s look at this logically. I do not know how big the dog is but from the photo it looks quite large. In fact, probably bigger than the two fawns and maybe as big as the doe itself. Was the doe intent on attacking the dog and owner or was it merely concerned for the welfare of its babies and the doe herself?
