Let him try - There's a landscape, the stag is still pretty wild (you should have seen how wild he was when he went after a tourist whom he suspected of having more food than she'd given him, LOL), and General applies all photos in general... Wink

In Angie's defence there are signs there that say they are wild creatures and not to feed them.

Maybe you can explain to me why a Red Deer would eat a Pear or an apple? I have watched the tea bar guy feed them bananas, do these beggars eat anything stuck in their mouths.

This is not the noble beast we imagine in folk lore just a smart 21st century scrounger. Whatever happened to the monarch of the Glen?

All the very best
