  Red deer in the Park.
by diosh

The deer are able to roam where they want in the Park, so the public have to be advised to keep clear of them and not to feed them.
Deceased animals have been found to have ring-pulls, plastic bags and other rubbish in their stomachs from inconsiderate picnickers, who leave their rubbish lying around.
They are also advised to be careful in the rutting season, but still people try to get too close to them, thinking they are tame.
Some people allow their dogs to get near them and frighten them and risk being injured, so all dogs should be on leads when in the vicinity of the deer.
