    Anti Clockwise

    Can anyone shed a light or reason why roe deer run anti clockwise around the rutting circle and never clockwise.

    Sensible answers or views please

    I imagine they are predominantly right sided??

    I notice my dogs both favour one lead canter when they are running; the lab strikes off with his right and my lurcher with her left.

    having said that roe are renowned to do afigure of 8 in the rut which will mean a clockwise circle folowed by an anticlockwise circle. I seam to remember from one of Richard Priors books that he states they tend to be quite ambidextrous so I might have just blown my comment above out of the water.

    I think its because we are in the northern hemisphere and they only go clockwise in the southern hemisphere

    Sorry I dont do sensible

    A northern hemisphere thing.

    Weather systems, tornados and water down plugholes all rotate anti-clockwise up here - as does the earth itself (if viewed from a point directly above the north pole).

    Or to put it another way:

    Conservation of gravitational energy. The force of gravity causes force towards the center of the earth and the "curl conservation force" points away from the center

    0=dV/dt + cDelxV + R' cDel.V, the curl DelxV is the counter force circulating anti-clockwise in the northern hemisphere. R' is the radial unit vector.


    Roe have obviously studied this! (or are susceptible to it's effect). See also Coriolis Effect.
