so i was reading this magnificent fic named “quid pro quo” by anon8043 (pls read if you haven’t yet, it’s amazing trust me) and there’s this scene towards the end… i couldn’t get it out of my head okay.
i live right next to said national park (bushy park) in that video and there are signs on every gate saying 'the deer are wild animals, do not feed them'. also i have only once encountered a deer that actually approached humans, i wouldn't say it's common. most run away, some just ignore us, but every year there's at least 1 report of someone being chased or attacked during rutting season so it's pretty dangerous to get that close! they are not at all tame.
