Situated in the Richmond upon Thames borough of London, Richmond Park is one of the largest and most stunning of Londons Royal Parks. Known for its rich flora and fauna, the deer at Richmond are one of the star attractions for nature lovers who love to recuperate in among the wildlife.
While slips, trips and falls are typical park-related accidents, the deer at Richmond pose another health risk for visitors. While these graceful creatures typically live harmoniously alongside their park guests, should an injury be inflicted on you caused by the deer at Richmond, you may be left wondering where liability lies.
Staying safe around the deer at Richmond Park
When visiting the deer at Richmond Park, it is important to remember that deer are, in fact, wild animals, and should be treated as such. Wherever possible, it is advised that guests keep a safe distance of 50 metres away from the deer at Richmond.
It is also asked of guests that they do not feed, pet or photograph the wild deer, or make them feel uncomfortable in their natural habitat in any way. Avoid approaching rutting stags, or deer calves, as their mother is likely to be very protective of her newborn.
