WENATCHEE -- Wildlife officials say Wenatchee residents may have some unexpected visitors this fall and winter as deer displaced by the wildfires come into their yards looking for food.
The Wenatchee World reported fires in the foothills have ravaged the mule deer's normal feeding grounds.
Wildlife officials said it's too early to know how badly those lands have been affected.
Von Pope of the Chelan County PUD said in addition to the fires, other factors include how hard this winter will be and how much vegetation comes back up this fall. The PUD owns 960 acres of land.
