We lost a good friend on Seabrook Island this week . The piebald deer we called “Two Spot” died, most likely from natural causes. His photograph is displayed in the Lake house lobby. Some residents thought that he may have drowned because of the heavy rains and very high tides we experienced this weekend. However, deer are excellent swimmers and he may have just died a natural death. White tailed deer may live 10 or more years in the wild but most live only 3 to 5 years. “Two Spot” was 4 1/2 years old. Attached are photos of “Two Spot” taken over the past 4 years, the latter of which was taken just last week. Three additional piebald deer currently call Seabrook Island home.
