Title: Fenton chasing deer on Richmond Park
Post by: Admin on November 29, 2011, 08:29:23 AM
The original vodeo
JESUS CHRIST IN RICHMOND PARK: ORIGINAL UPLOAD (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GRSbr0EYYU#)

Does have an element of fun, BUT.......

There are so many things wrong.  Poor deer being chased, how often does this happen?

I know the owner is doing his best, but he does not have control of the dog.  I hope he keeps the dog on the lead next time he visits Richmond Park.

I hope a lot of people have a joke about this video, but then see the more serious side of it too.

Must object to two separate comments made on YouTube.  First of all, it is NOT very common for dogs in most states to be allowed to run loose in parks "in grassy fields". This is seen on TV fiction a lot, but this is not reality.  Some parks forbid dogs altogether, due to complaints of some owners not picking up after their dogs.  The largest park in the next city enforces it's no dogs allowed rule w/fines. It does have a small adjoining fenced in area known as a dog park, where you can let your dog off leash to play w/other dogs while you supervise.  But it is small, & the only one in that city.  My county has no dog park at all, even tho well populated county.  Dogs are allowed only on leash. Have found this very common policy.

Secondly, even if driving slow, panicked deer over here will sometimes run into side of your vehicle.  This has happened to me twice on separate occasions, both by bucks w/antlers, damaging my car each time. Deer can come through windshield,hurting driver or passenger, occaisionally kiiling one of them.  They also make you lose control of your car, then anything can happen.

This is the best chasing vid I have seen on youtube, I think the 4th vid in around there the dog is in Richmond very near deer & it suddenly goes straight at them, but watch what happens then....amazing, its quite lengthy for a chasing vid on youtube but there are around 8 clips in it.
