    When we entered the park we were given a bright orange sheet of paper with a warning stating that there had been a beggar deer hanging around the Roaring Brook parking lot apparently tourists had been feeding this deer and it was now accustomed to being fed by hand. The deer had become aggressive on occassion , actually using its front hooves to try and "convince" some unlucky person to share their lunch! Please do NOT feed any of the wildlife it is dangerous to humans and to the animals themselves and in most parks it is also illegal.

    Moose, dear and other wildlife abound in Baxter State Park. In the time that we were there, we had at least one, usually more, moose sighting per day!

    Most of the wildlife is happy enough to just leave you alone, but that doesn't mean human visitors shouldn't use caution. Moose expecially are very large and cows will defend there calves with all their might. Don't let that happen to you!

    Better to be looking up at the storm from down at camp and not be caught on the top. Plan to be off the summit by 1:00 on humid unsettled days to avoid the infamous displays up close.
