Letter: Another view of our urban deer

Brief deer encounter could have ended quite differently

One morning last week I was walking my dog, on leash, on a narrow part of the trail from Calvert Crescent to Anderson Hill Park, when we were startled by a magnificent buck which rounded the next bend just meters ahead of us.

The buck was in full flight from a pursuing dog.  Fortunately the buck immediately swerved off the trail through a partial gap in the trees and a collision was avoided.

This brief encounter could have ended quite differently.
