Tlie deer, walking along the
road to the airport near the Snake
river boat landing, were first seen
by the Scubal boys who live near
by. By the time the deer reached
the airport on top of the hill they
had attracted so many persons they
were frightened away. They ran
across the top of the hill, crossed
highway 20 just east of the bridge
and ran onto the hill on the north

While in a field on the hill, the
deer were chased by cows and ran
back onto the airport side, where
they remained at least until dark.
