April 4, 1906.  A freight train on the Copper Range railroad was delayed fifteen minutes at Seager, thirty-five miles south of Houghton, by a herd of deer on the tracks. They had evidently been driven from the woods by wolves and were too frightened to heed the approaching train. The trainmen counted thirteen animals. It was some time before they could be driven off the tracks. One deer was chased for fully two miles before it sprang into the bushes. [DFP-1906-0404]
