I hadn't known of the danger to pets from this plant. Key Deer are VERY fond of eating the leaves from Sheff.

Just because something may be toxic to pets like dogs and cats doesn't necessarily mean that it's also toxic to deer--different types of animals have problems with different things (for example we can eat grapes & chocolate with no problem, but they're toxic to dogs)
