STREETER, N.D. - There could be more deer than people in Streeter.

Residents estimate between 200 and 300 animals have taken shelter in the town now that deep snow and cold weather have made the open prairie less welcoming. That gives the deer an edge in a town with 159 residents, according to the 2005 census estimate.


It's prompted some residents to wonder how close they could get to the deer.
