oh deer

Recently whilst working at a summer activity center. A group of children doing a low ropes obstacle course spotted a Deer having an afternoon snooze in the middle of a swamp next to the course.

Most, having never seen a deer before, pointed and screamed “look a Deer, Look Loooookk! ” much to the disgust of the snoozing mammal. Now the poor thing has not only been disturbed by a dozen over zealous children it has the unfortunate problem of trying to get out of the swamp in a semi graceful fashion – we all know how much Deers enjoy their image of grace. And so with a disdainful look and a snort the disturbed Deer wandered away, picking its way carefully through its own obstacle course, leaving the children to get on with their own.
