Only time I've been that close to a deer is the farm variety.View attachment 467582 The Deer in Richmond Park are quite used to people and in no way timid , as you can see by my pic , but some riders are quite unaware of the sudden dangers these animals can impose , for instance , on the very day day I took that pic about 1/2 an hour earlier on a no motor traffic road in the park there was a lot of Deer strewed both sides of the road , most of the cycle traffic slowed down so as not to spook them and limit any danger , but a group of 5 riders pushed on past me at a fair old speed without any consideration or concern whatsoever to danger the Deer could have inflicted or the harm on themselves or the Deer , all jolly dee chatting and laughing etc , If they had come unstuck I personally would have had no sympathy with the riders ,
