STEER CLEAR OF THE DEER

First News - - ANIMAL NEWS -

RANGERS from the Royal Parks in Lon­don are urg­ing peo­ple not to feed the deer when they visit this sum­mer.

Feed­ing the deer teaches them to go to hu­mans for food, which is a bad habit for them to get into. Deer are graz­ing an­i­mals and feed on the grass­land, shoots and trees in their habi­tat, and other food can make them very ill. Deer can be found in many of the UK’s parks and wood­lands, in­clud­ing two of the Royal Parks: Rich­mond Park and Bushy Park. While they may look gentle, deer are un­pre­dictable an­i­mals and can cause se­ri­ous in­juries if they feel up­set or threat­ened. It is best to stay at least 50m away from any deer you see.
