Scene nearby: Oh deer! Posted: October 31, 2014 814 Mike McAuliffe was driving down Maplewood toward Main Street in Edmonds Thursday when he says he saw something coming down the sidewalk. “My first reaction was, “What a big dog,” but as I got closer it turned out to be a deer,” he said. The deer headed into a vacant lot on Maplewood where a house had recently been torn down and McAuliffe took this photo while the animal enjoyed a lunchtime snack. “I have lived a few blocks off Maplewood for 15 years and this was the first time I have seen a deer in the area,” he said.
