We have a doe locally which is protective of her young to the extreme last week she knocked a lab over and when the woman walking the dog went to intervene she was charged and hit by the doe luckily she stated clear of hoves. Apparantly this we think the same doe has done this before for the past few years.
hopefully it is putting dog walkers off going there as there is no right of way.
anyone else know of similer things I have seen it first hand in bucks charging without realising i was not another deer.
also had a cock pheasant a few years ago would chase most things out of his terratory.
