Default Why deer swim sometimes. Ticks!

I remeber many times being on the Kankakee River wading downstream from where deer looked like they were taking a bath or having fun. Other times they were crossing the river to get to the other side. Anyhow, several of these trips we get home and had several ticks on us. They were in the car too. I think that at times, deer and other animals swim in the water to de-tick themselves or at least try to get rid of the ticks. Most of the time I've encountered ticks were near brushy shorelines, after a rain, with gusty windy conditions. Either the ticks drop off of the brush or trees, or the rain and wind must stir them into being creepy and crawling around, and getting on me and getting you, and the kids, and the dog! I hate ticks. Arrg!
