It's the wildlife biologists that they are talking to that are saying is could be linked to climate change. And to clear up your misunderstanding, part of climate change is having drastic fluctuations in weather around the world. Minnesota can have a incredibly cold winter, while Texas is in the middle of its worse drought on record. Global average temperature rises, and in turn cause extremely dramatic weather.

It is disgusting how many deer you see on the highway north of Duluth to the Canadian Border. It's almost impossible to grow a garden there. The Bambi sympathetics feeding deer have caused a real problem.
