Post Do deer eat dog food?

I think we have a deer from the bean field next to us eating the dog's food at night. Saw some tracks around the dog pen, but it's controversial whether or not it's a deer. How can we find out for sure?

Hope it's not a bear. Haven't lost any cats or dogs yet though.

If they're hungry they will eat anything. There is some nutrition for them in the dog food so why not. Coon will eat dog/cat food everytime.

what kind of tracks are left behind?

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

it could be a deer if they are lacking salt or minerals that could be in the dog food
