Cycling back form school across richmond park and as I went round a corner I came face to face with a bloody great male red deer. (Think it was a red it was bloody massive). I retreated to a safe distance and took some pictures but they didnt come out to well as the light was shite). Then it did one of those spooky grunting/honking noises they do and wandered off into the wood.

I saw loads on the way over near the roads at 7.30 this morning but I wasnt expecting one on the road at 4.30 with so many people in the park.

Have to watch out - its the rut at the moment and they are pretty dangerous.

There are loads of Roe deer round here, and I've come close to cardiac arrest a few times when they run out in front of my car.

I was about to post to aim better next time, and then I read you were on a bike rather than driving a car, as I had assumed. And subsequently I also read they're dangerous this time of the year. I assume it would have hurt you pretty badly if you'd ran into that deer. Bruises, stitches, a concussion, possibly broken bones, and who knows, a shattered spine.

So... aim better next time.

Suicidal deer. What do they have to look forward to in life ? Except becoming venison ?

The odds are this deer was under 80.

Actually I would assume he'd be worse off in a full-speed car.
