Animals tend to have better weather-detecting abilities than most humans. We don’t know exactly how they do it, but they may sense changes in air pressure, or hear sounds at a frequency beyond what human ears are capable of.
Often dogs, horses, and birds tend to get uneasy before a thunderstorm or another major weather event; they know something is happening.
Amscolie’s deer are no exception. Three fawns snuck into her house without her noticing, thanks to the open back door.
“I raise orphaned wildlife. Recently, the back door was open as a storm was coming. The deer were nowhere to be found. Went inside, and was heading to the front door, only to see them next to an end table in the living room. Told them they could sleep in the house for the night because it was going to be nasty.”
Instead of worrying about the storm, they got to snuggle in and have a cozy night away from the bad weather.
