Monarch of the Glen

On the left is Sherry, a red deer hind, who was brought up in a lady's kitchen until she was six. Being so tame she can't be released in the wild, so she let us stoke and feed her. The red deer stag on the right is one of two at the centre, but have had to be separated as it is rutting season at the moment. Being that they are in a fenced area they can't risk too many conflicts so they have a harem of females each. This one has the maximum of 8 points or tines, so he's an emperial.
