Deer eating Crinum

Thinking that all amaryllids are poisonous and therefore would be
deer-proof, I planted several Crinum x powellii outside our deer fence a
couple of years ago.  Apparently the local deer have cast-iron stomachs,
because they regularly mow the foliage to the ground.  I suspect that I'll
need to dig up the bulbs and move them inside the fence if I ever want to
see flowers.

Has anyone else encountered deer that like to eat amaryllids?
