Wrong Side of the Fence

This young buck was observed along a deer-proof fence, but on the vineyard side.

I photographed this buck walking along a deer-proof fence, but on the vineyard side.

How does a deer get trapped on the wrong side of a vineyards fence?  And, what happens to that deer when it can’t get out.

A large gate along Arroyo Road in Livermore, at Wente Vineyards near the VA hospital is usually shut when I drive by, but apparently this buck managed to sneak through and become trapped inside the fence which is supposed to keep deer away from the grapes and the Golf Course.

Might be nice if they would install a one-way escape gate. There is such a thing.

There are many versions. Here’s one.
