Oh deer - what a sight
Comments (0)

MOTORISTS circled a busy Gloucester roundabout to catch a glimpse of a bashful deer on Monday.

Although deer have been spotted there since June, many drivers had no i-deer that the animals were on the C&G roundabout at Barnwood.

Our photographer, Paul Nicholls, spent 45 minutes at the site catching only fleeting glimpses of the elusive animal as it bounded in and out of the central patch of woodland.

He said: "Every time it saw me, it darted off back into the wooded part of the roundabout, it was really difficult to get the pictures.

"It seemed worried about the cars and it's a bit worrying that it may get hit by one."

    Have they done anything about the poor animal, as it must be terrifying for the creature.

    Is it just me who finds these trolls annoying? The rest of us want to have an informed discussion, so come on trolls, leave us alone.

    It's only an animal! Just kill it and save us all the trouble of trying to hit it with our cars.

    If people like Garin Coulon had there way you have to wonder how much wildlife would be left. I suspect that it would only be the birds and animals that "people" like him breed for the pleasure of killing, as they regard anything else as vermin to be exterminated, What a nice human being you must be.

    garin, do you know what damage human beings do to this world, and the creatures in it.. try hitting one of them with a spade and see where that gets you. people like you are vermin, and need to be exterminated. what an example of the human race you are, now maybe you can see why i prefef animals.
