Strange goings’ on in the foothills of North Carolina. So strange in fact, a local paper has dedicated a page to mapping sightings of a piebald deer along with a contest to name the creature for a grand prize of ten dollars.
Cleveland County, home of Bridges Barbeque in Shelby, is about an hour west of Charlotte. According to the map, this deer has covered quite a bit of territory, ranging as far as Lake Wylie (southwest of Charlotte) to South Mountains State Park (south of Morganton). The majority of the sightings are in the Shelby-Cherryville-Gastonia triangle.
This may not mean much to you but it sure does to my Mother, who sent me the map. Click here to check it out, it really is kinda neat.
