EAST PROVIDENCE — It’s becoming a regular occurrence in the Riverside section of the city, cars pulled to the curb viewing the grazing habits of several deer inside the fenced property owned by the ExxonMobil Co. just off Wampanoag Trail.

On Friday afternoon, Dec. 27, around dusk, two distinct groups of white tail deer were seeking out their dinner near the fence along Forbes Street, one, with as many as five members, was very close to the Trail near the entrance to KendBrin Swim Club and the Centre Court Tennis Club.

A bit farther to the west along Forbes, near the entryway to the Exxon facility, another group, three in number, pecked away at the grass and brush in search of sustenance.

Several cars stopped for a period of time on both sides of Forbes Street to take in the scenic natural setting. For their part, the deer seemed unfazed by the minor intrusion of their time, going about their business with little curiosity of those watching.
