For most of the year Bushy Park’s deer are very docile, not even batting an eye-lid when visitors walk right up to them, only to happy to pose for pictures and even be stroked but park users are reminded that the animals are wild and shouldn’t become friendly with us humans.
There have been recent reports of people feeding ducks near the central car park that have been butted and in one case knocked into the pond by particularly forward deer looking to get some of the feed. Royal Parks have also issued warnings for dog walkers as it is now the yearly birthing season and reports of deer charging dogs have started again. They will also be offering advice for dog-walkers on the ITV News 6pm on 1st June. Photo: Rhodri Williams.
