Relocating the Columbian white-tailed deer

Doug Zimmer of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service points at the spot where a dike is failing at the Julia Butler Hansen Refuge for the Columbian White-Tailed Deer in Cathlamet, Washington Tuesday February 19, 2013. The dike was built in the 1920's to create farmland, and has not been maintained. When it fails, 28 million dollars of federally-funded infrastructure and habitat for an endangered species will flood with 5-6 feet of water twice daily with the tides.
