    Not sleeping at home then

    Difficult to get Golborne and urban in the same sentence?
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    Hello Dom.

    I like the quote under the picture - "Red deer, that have larger antlers than introduced species like muntjac, are a particular problem" . Maybe the journo who wrote this article has never seen a muntjac, which would explain the quote.

    A `Royal` munty, now there would be a thing to behold....

    Shows what we are up against though...

    I agree. In the paper edition of the paper they had a photo of two roe. Then, without making any distinction, they talk about the rut being in full flow and stags being a danger, obviously referring to red deer.

    Hey-ho, at least they are talking about deer!

    I don't know where they are getting their information from.... what's all this about warmer winters?

    Going back a fair few years, I should think it was the early 1980's, I can remember several reports of muntjac that had taken up residence in the large gardens of the long rows of big Victorian terraced houses in an area of Bradford, it caused quite a stir as munties were a rarity and were even reported as Chinese water deer.! I don't know if they are still sighted. From memory it was somewhere near the B.R.I. At that time I was working in the fruit n veg markets (so out of bed nice and early) and regularly saw Roe, often several at a time, happily feeding on a large round about that used to be just outside of the city center. They are among us!!!

    I've felt obliged to write to the Telegraph before about inaccuracies in the way that the author of this article reports issues.
