    I walked into a deer and stepped on a rabbit during an early morning walk playing Go in that heady 2016 summer. I only got a picture of the deer, the rabbit immediately bolted. I felt very embarrassed about how completely I lost track of my surroundings and tried to play much more responsibly the rest of the summer

    Deer and rabbits don't normally just let people walk into/onto them, maybe they were also playing Pokémon Go.

    If anyone needs to feel embarrassed, it's the deer and the rabbit.

    I have questions:

    1) Cell reception in the woods?
    2) Poke-stops / Gyms in the woods?

    I don't know, I think the rabbit at least might have zero worries about self-image. They have two modes: hide and run. I think they are terrified of everything larger than they are and some things that are smaller.

    I've never played either, but early on Pokemon Go just used all the Ingress points. and they were all user added and plentiful. I hear there has been a lot of consolidation and culling since then to avoid "abuses".

    We all seemed to be very startled and confused

    shouldn't that be more like "please meat, hold still, I am hungry"

    That's Gabe's dialog in the last frame, not the wolf's.

    My SO saw a rabbit and a rat in the backyard the other day, rooting around under the bird feeder. They didn't notice each other at first, but when the rabbit saw the rat it immediately starting trying to kick the rat's face in.

    This morning I saw a mouse running in a tiny circle on the sidewalk, like it was chasing its tail. It did this for, like, ten minutes. When I went outside it skittered away a little but kept doing the circles.


    This doesn't have anything to do with the comic but I thought it was cute and sad and kinda weird. And I felt left out with all the weird animal stories.

    @RatherDashing89 Careful small rodents present odd behavior like that when they have Rabies.

    I saw a video that had a rabbit jumping up and dropkicking a goat on the face, but it was only effective at launching the rabbit off the goat's head.

    Another one had a tiny hare squealing when it's picked up, but when they put it down it started trying to charge the person that held it.

    Small rodents (like squirrels, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rats, and mice) and lagomorphs (including rabbits and hares) are almost never found to be infected with rabies and have not been known to transmit rabies to humans.

    To the person mentioning deer it really depends on where you live, the season and some luck. I've had a deer come pretty close to me on more than one occasion. Possibly due to being fed by humans so it loses its sense of being afraid and or slight domestication. Same for rabbits. The rabbit situation was even odder since it hopped towards me while walking my large mastiff who crapped in excitement of his potential new friend (never meal since he only enjoys playing with animals to death but never eats or injures them on purpose) was a struggle to keep him on his harness/saddle and leash.

    My other encounter with a deer was while waiting at a red light. The deer full on foot ball line backer tackled my car out of nowhere. People didn't believe the report that I had been hit by a deer not the other way around.

    They really should be. Accidents like that can cost a lot of doe but insurance is only a few bucks a month.

    This happened well before I was old enough to be attending, but the Junior High I went to once had a stag wander in through a door that was propped open during lunch time, got spooked and went running around the halls, before eventually smashing out a pane of glass next to a closed exterior door and running back into the undeveloped land behind the sports fields. I mean, we were right near a national park that has deer herds, so it wasn't that weird for one to be around, but it always made me wonder why it came into the building in the first place.
