Thread: Animal droppings. Picture Identification - is it deer?

    Animal droppings. Picture Identification - is it deer?

    Could anyone help identify these droppings for me? They are alongside a £1 coin for size reference. The location is not known for having deer but the characteristics seem to be deerish. There are no sheep on the ground and they look way too big & the wrong shape to be rabbit or hare.

    Thanks!

    Interesting - there have been Muntjac sightings a number of miles away. Sounds like the game camera is going up!

    ​Does anyone second the muntjac suggestion or think differently?

    Polecat or mink. Not deer
    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    I found these in N. Ireland - not aware that there are mink or polecat there and not many deer, so I'm mildly perplexed. Muntjac and fallow are in the vincinity.

    I reckon thats a crapping read. I crapped-up seeing your post.
    Actually,I had to search it on Amazon to find out if it really exists. It does and I ordered a copy. I spent a penny.
    No,really,it was 1p for the book and £2.80 postage.
