Harriet is the calm and fearless leader whom the other does in her family group gladly follow. She likes a lot of time to wander alone, but at the first sign of trouble (such as an aggressive buck harassing the smaller females), she is right there to protect her family and lead them to safety. Her job as family leader and protector used to be shared with her big sis Doe #24, with whom she had an incredibly close bond, but sadly Doe #24 was killed by a speeding car on Ludlow in 2018. Since Doe #24’s untimely death, Harriet seems to have become closer to Gladys (Doe #49). At the time of this posting (September 2019), Harriet is ~6.5 years old.
Harriet lives in Mt. Storm Park and the woods between Lafayette Avenue and Rue de la Paix with her family, Doe #62 a/k/a Louise (age ~4.5), Doe #55 aka Ethel (age ~3.5), Doe #49 a/k/a Gladys (age ~6.5), and Louise’s as-yet-untagged daughter.
Harriet, Louise, Ethel and Gladys are known among Lafayette Avenue neighbors as “The Mount Storm Bridge Club.”
