Deer me: 4-legged mama leads kids into Colo. store

WASHINGTON — She’s ready for her closeup.

A determined deer, her younglings and a buck she was nursing were snapped waltzing into a Colorado inn and RV park, KUSA reported.

Their public debut was captured on camera by the woman who works at Horsetooth Inn and RV Park, Lori Jones.

The curious critters checked out snacks — and sunglasses.

“Later, I was in the office checking the store stock,” Jones wrote in an email to 9News. “I walked out and there she was with her twins and a lone buck that she nursed. I just used my phone to snap the pics. I laughed so hard!”

She said she had to lure the nosy animal neighbors back outside with a peanut bar.
