Whilst idly perusing the top shelf of my newsagent, I came across
a copy of "Undercover Deer" magazine. I have always been
fascinated by deer, and was curious as to how such animals would adapt
to an urban environment.
In my experience, deer resent being cooped up in sheds or kitchens,
and get moody and depressed if kept indoors for too long. As I child
I would often face the grisly task of executing unhappy deer - there
is no room in a household for a deer that refuses to pull its weight.
The magazine proved to be a pleasant surprise. There were handy tips
on how to disguise your deer for a number of urban situations, from
High Street shopping to garden parties and barbecues.
There were also a number of true-life stories from deer owners around
the world. It is always good to feel a part of a community.
