Nine deer at famed park in Japan die after eating plastic bags

TOKYO (AP) – Nine deer at a famed park in western Japan have died recently after swallowing plastic bags. Nara Park has more than 1,000 deer, and tourists can feed them special sugar-free crackers sold in shops nearby. The crackers don’t come in plastic bags, but people still carry them. A veterinarian said the deer may associate the plastic with food. More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin
