White-Tailed Deer Statues

Who doesn’t love a good roadside attraction? Especially when it’s so cute! During your Road Trip to St. Malo, you’ll find a charming pair of White-Tailed Deer Statues.

The statues were constructed and placed in honour and recognition of the valuable volunteer assistance provided to the Department of Natural Resources by St. Malo and District Wildlife Association and area residents.

The history dates back to 1985 to 1988, when the first-ever large-scale urban deer relocation program in Canada took place. The program relocated 283 white-tailed deer that were captured and moved from the city of Winnipeg to the St. Malo Wildlife Management Area and surrounding region. Dedicated residents provided assistance and equipment to aid in the transportation of the deer through countless volunteer time and financial resources that helped establish St. Malo and Rat River Wildlife Management Areas.

In 2015 the statues were removed when a developer purchased the land they were on. But fortunately, they have returned to a new location in St. Malo for all to enjoy! You can find the two White-Tailed Deer Statues on the corner of Highway 59 and Avenue De La Grotte, St. Malo.
