This morning.

Phoenix Park, Dublin.

Ruairi Ginty (above) posts a letter to Rudolf as increasingly large numbers of visitors are causing undue stress on the park’s wild deer. As an alternative to feeding the deer,park staff have set up a number of post boxes for children to drop off their letters to Rudolf.

Unspecified forest, County Wicklow.

A comfy high chair shooting platform used to kill wild deer.

According to the Irish Times last year: ‘Wicklow accounts for over a third of all deer shot by licensed hunters in Ireland in the last hunting season, and a high concentration of deer in certain areas has been linked to outbreaks of TB.’

The deer hunting season began on September 1.

Actual deer or donkey with stuck-on antlers?
