It has been proven in studies that feeding deer alfalfa or hay  can result in the deer having a ful lstomach and die of starvation.

Years ago when bad winters hit Colorado , many tried to feed deer hay and the reuslts were disasterous. Now if it is required, special formulated pelltes are fed.

"Humans will die if all they eat is steak.'

I'm not so sure about that. See if you can find the book "Endurance" by Alfred Lansing. It's about the Shackleton Expedition, where there ship got caught in the ice. For a while they lived on ships store but when the ice crushed and sank the ship, they had yo go out onto the ice and try and get to a whaling station. I don't remeber how many hundeds of miles they had to go but when what little they could carry ran out, they ate their doge,any seals and penguins they came across and for all practical purposes live on a pure meat diet until they reached safety. Shackelton and his 27 men not only survied the oerdeal but were in perfect health when they arrived.
Interestingly enough, the filmed their whole ordeal and it was made into a movie, silent of course. Not knowing if they'd survive Sir Earnest Shackleton decided to film as much as they could in case they didn't make it, should their bodies be found. Every once in a great while it get shown on Turner Classic Movies on the Sunday Night Silents. You can probably go to TCM.com and find it there for sale. I've seen it twice over the past few years and kind of wish they'd run it again. Teyw ere out on that ic for a very long time. I forget just how long but somehow 6 months seems to stick in my mind, but that could be wrong.
