Pea Patch Pilferage

At my principal work site, we have a nice little garden, which features a variety of vegetables, among which are a couple of rows of peas. To the dismay of one of my co-workers, someone, or something, has been tearing up the pea patch, and not in the idiomatic sense. Last night, I came face-to-face with the culprit:

Doe, you are soooooo busted!

She's a lovely whitetail doe, with a beautiful, glossy coat. She's not shy at all, either. I was able to get within ten feet of her, and she merely wandered off at an amble when the human presence got too oppressive.

I'll have to post a printout of this photo on the wall of the employees' lounge as a "wanted" poster.

UPDATE: Done...

All I see at work is waiting rooms full of sick people vomiting. It would be worth having my peas pulled for a sight like that.

That's why I typically don't complain about my job. Even when it's a pain, it's more fun than most.

You got some 'splaining to do!

Yeah, she does, but at least she's not eating my nettles.
