Even though they don't venture out into the water, they're not going hungry.

The man who lives on the property uses a boat to bring the deer hay. He says the deer are New Zealand red-tails and he can't move them because of the Department of Natural Resources rules related to chronic wasting disease.

Jefferson County is in southern Wisconsin, west of Milwaukee.
