apologies if this has been posted already.

This video of a guy who wanted to run the deer out of his yard or garden and wanted to see how they reacted to a drone flying over them.

what they did and didn't do, just amazed me.

Neat video, thanks for sharing! I am really surprised the deer didn't haul arse, especially when the drone seemed to get in fairly close.

Maybe the deer thought it was a big bug, and it looked like they got the drone pretty close too.

Never having seen a drone they did not know what it was. They probably thought it was a bird of some type.

the way they react is kind of curious

you would expect the run away response

probably why big foot can get food, they just stand there and look at him while he is moving in

Why live there and try to run off the deer? Simple. They were raiding his gardens and he didn't want to kill them (or couldn't). Just because you live somewhere doesn't mean you want deer or other wildlife ruining your stuff, LOL.

I believe he stated they were eating his garden
