Why? Sometimes they smash in innocent birds' skulls to steal their nesting sites.

And what we would call bird nests, they call a cheap and easy buffet, gobbling up baby birds like the freshest of nuggets. If they can get their dirty hooves on it, deer will dine on just about any corpse in any state of decay. And that apparently includes humans.
