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.

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