Surreal morning

Another tyre photo, this time because my son and I startled a herd of muntjac deer on a track this morning and a doe (I assume it was the mother) charged his bike and knocked him off. He escaped bruised and a bit shocked but the deer left some hair in the brake mechanism as you can see. I've never seen deer behaviour like this before - my guess is either that it felt trapped and was defending its young (it was quite a narrow bridleway between high walls) or it panicked and was actually trying to escape rather than charge him, and simply ran into him. Either way he will have a story to tell at school tomorrow!
