Deer fawns make themselves at home on Berkeley street

A doe took her two fawns for a stroll Sunday afternoon on Tacoma Avenue. Lauren Richmond, who took the photographs here, said they appeared to be remarkably relaxed given that they were grazing in a built-up, urban environment.

Earlier this month there were reports of deer charging at pedestrians and their dogs in Berkeley.
