The Weekend Picture No. 43
|Mad Eye Deer at Longleat|
We were at Longleat Safari Park two weeks ago.
We saw lions, rhinoceroses and hippoes. Our car was sat on by monkeys and we had meerkats ducking between our feet. We laughed at the porcupines and the anteater.
But the highlight for the Dubmeister was Mad Eye Deer. Halfway round you get to pay to feed the deer. You pull onto the side of the road and, in a reverse of a MacDonalds' Drive Thru the Deer gather by your car window, mouths open, napkins around their necks and knives and forks at the ready.
The greediest of the deer was Mad Eye who worked her way through our bag of treats without pausing for breath.
She is called Mad Eye Deer because ... Well, you see if you can work it out.
