Those deer going to start an uprising.
I will find me some deer in July and see if this is really true
The deer really do roam the city freely. Although they congregate mainly in the park, they traverse around different parts of the city by pedestrian crossing. They seem to observe traffic rules. The males pose steadily when they see a camera, while the females shy away from the lens. They tolerate your touch as long as there is that potential promise of food. No food no touch. They can be aggressive (I pity the lady who was head butted and charged by a deer with 30cm antlers, but for the most part they mostly nip at your clothing and run against you to get attention. I told a deer “dame” (don’t in Japanese) and he stopped rubbing his head against me, took a step back, and started “rubbing” his head in the empty space next to me, which I think is considered bowing.
