Desperate panic! The deer crashed into the side of the car after locking the antlers with opponents as they reached the peak of the vein season in Richmond Park.
- Two staggering locking antlers were found to fight in Richmond Park in west London.
- Feeling defeated, a deer fled before being pushed into the side of a car
- It is currently the deer mating season and people have been warned to stay 50 meters away
At this moment a wild deer jumps to the side of the car after fleeing in a fight with a rival stag.
When they locked the antlers for a showdown in Richmond Park in London last Wednesday, the pair of deer moved away a bit.
The video, captured by a walker, shows the stugs just a few yards away, coming together more than once when they try to impose their dominance.
Completely unaware of their surroundings, the animals bring their fights closer and closer to the streets where visitors gathered to watch the pair.
The stronger man pushes his weaker opponent one by one, forcing him to retreat further.
Feeling defeated, the deer decides to flee, but falls into a car on the side of the road.
Lander Esparza Judea captured footage of the park last week when he was on a trip.
When they locked the antlers for a showdown at Richmond Park in London last Wednesday, the pair of deer had moved a little farther.
The video, captured by a walker, shows stugs just a few yards away, coming together more than once as they try to dominate.
‘I thought I was safe enough to keep a distance … but obviously I was wrong,’ he wrote on social.
Lander said looking at the crash in the car, it appeared that he was ‘isolated from the surroundings, just focused on the fight’ and did not notice the car.
The 1000 free-roaming fallow deer living in the Royal Parks of Richmond-Oh-Thames are in the autumn or breeding season.
After feeling defeated, one of the deer decides to flee, but his path is blocked when he goes straight on the road and hits the side of a car.
Between September and November, in what is known as the ‘root’, dominant stags compete to mate with female deer by roaring at their rivals.
This can cause stagnation between two men who can lock their horns to compete with their partner.
Royal Parks has warned people that animals are not ‘Disney animals’ and advises keeping them at a safe distance of about 50 yards.
How to keep the area safe from shaking during the rooting season
Free-roaming deer in Richmond Park as well as Bushy Park on the other side of the River Thames are wildlife and it can be predictable.
Spectacles and walkers need to be especially careful during both the rotting / mating season (September-November) and the birthing season (May-July).
Royal parks advise people to always keep at least 50 meters away from deer and not try to touch, feed or photograph them.
Dog walkers have been warned that deer can feel threatened by dogs even over long distances when they are not behaving provocatively.
Park rangers advise keeping dogs in the lead and avoiding deer gathering areas.
If a deer charges you, walkers are advised to let their dog drop the lead, so that the dog can escape danger.
You should try to put a tree-like vehicle or ‘enough barrier’ between yourself and the deer.
If a deer is approaching you, do not shout or look at it. If possible return slowly, the deer may be satisfied you have left its private territory.
