Some Canadians don't have to go camping to see deer
If you needed a reason to pick up new camping gear for your favorite outdoor fanatic this holiday season, recent Toronto events may further inspire you to crave nature once again.
A lucky few didn't have to head to the campgrounds to see a real, live deer, media sources reveal. A rather lost deer made a run for Toronto's financial district on November 24, and its presence may have just excited some Canadians about one last camping trip for 2009.
The deer was tasered and caught, but not before it was reportedly shot with a tranquilizer dart in an attempt to bring it down and take it back to its home. Office workers reportedly enjoyed the show, with one man having premature thoughts of lunch, The National Post reported.
"We could have ribs," he told the news provider, in response to comments from his workmates about hunting - in a more natural setting.
If this bizarre event had you hungry for nature, consider picking up camping gear, like some warm sleeping bags by Taigia, which can keep heat in down to -11 degrees Celsius. Need a new foam mat for comfort while camping? Therm-a-Rest offers a wide range of options so you'll sleep soundly under the stars.
