That deer is like, "Man, I have these humans trained so well. Nod my head a few times and they give me snacks. This is the life."
I threathen the horns and they give me the cookies.
Hahaha that’s a better explanation.
“Give cookie or stabby stabby”
“Neglect the buck-o and you get the stab-o”
Upvote, but Man, you missed the opportunity for the rhyme.....stuck-o haha
Neglect the buck-o and you get the stuck-o
Neglect the deer-o and you get sheer-o
Neglect the fawn and you will be gone
Neglect the moose and you get the noose
Neglect the doe and you gotta go
Definitely, it probably thought the guy was challenging him to a locked together horns sesh
The deer is not displaying aggressive behavior at all, which you can tell by its body language. It was very relaxed and loose and was obviously focused on the treat it wanted. Deer don't threaten to get rewards. It was responding in such a way that it knew the human would give it what it wanted.
Yes you can tell he’s not being aggressive right there, but training this deer may have been difficult because when deer are looking to fight they instinctively bow their heads and show their horns at their opponent
Obviously the deer is not aggressive right now but training the deer to go against their instincts like this is another stupid thing humans do.
We bow to show respect, they bow to show their horns when they’re about to fight and screwing with a deers reaction and perception of threat/non threat is just not cool
These deer weren't trained by people. This is a self learnt behavior that they've picked up over the years.
After getting snacks. from people. right?
Not being an ass, but they are antlers☺️
You're an ass also is that a fucking emoji?
“It puts the cookie in the mouth, or else it gets the antlers again!”
Give treat or get beat
any time the Nara deer get posted i have to say it... they're assholes. Like, if you have a cookie and don't give one, then they steal from you and bite you. Even if you have normal human food, they'll want that shit and "bow" at you but will get all mad when you don't give them your hot dog.
If you don't have anything though, they're pretty chill.
Fucking bastards bit my lovehandles.
0/10 would not recommend.
Thought it was a muffin top probably.
When I ran out of food for them a buck tried to knock me down - reared up on his back legs and shoved me. I had bruises from his tiny pointy hooves on my hip for a week.
Totally going to Nara again someday, though.
And don't let them surround you. I learned that the hard way.
All animals are trainable it just depends on how stubborn they are and how much they want to kill you
Go train a deer to drive a car
Opposable thumbs required. But I bet you I could train one to dance.
E: Please stop sending me the Adventure Time gif it's the worst thing I've ever seen 😬
But can you train it to leave its friends behind?
Depends. Did those friends dance? If not, he should just leave them behind.
Ssss Aaaa Ffff Eeee Tttt Yyyy Safety.. DANCE!
1000 yard stare
doop doop dee dee doop doop do-dee dee..
(Say what you will, but they sure had some cool synth!)
No man, you’re thinking of beep boop boop bop boop boop bop!
You're totally right on this. I got the message, and the message is clear.
If they don’t dance then they’re no friends of mine.
Not true. My pet worm Dave drove me to the hospital once.
You can't just call your tapeworm Dave and pretend he's doing what you're doing.
"These are the Daves I know, I know.. these are the Daves I know..
Daaaavviidd Tapeworm, he's my closest friend.
Didn't have a clue about who he was until I ate raw chicken..."
Kids in the Hall allusion...well played.
Dave is doing exactly what you’re doing
What a bro.
I read that in Graham Chapman's voice.
Opposable thumbs you say?
Considering all the car related terrors that deer have faced, do you REALLY want to give one that power?
I create superheroes.
You reminded me of one of the scariest things I've ever seen.
I will take the bet. You have one week, winner gets reddit gold. Post gif for evidence. So the terms are clear we are talking about your ability to train animals, not animals ability to be trained. Ready set go.
You say that, but I have literally seen a video of dogs driving modified cars (like, modified for dogs to drive, not pimped out)
So you'd have them do... a Deer Dance?
They do have opposable thumbs though...
Honestly no, I have crazy flexible knees and basically drive better with them than my hands. No over steering and I got two hands free.
Sal I love you
Not necessarily. If you replace the steering wheel with something like the helm of a ship then you may not need thumbs or even hands
Most steering wheels have some sort of opening/spoke setup. The dexterity might not be there, but thumbs are definitely not needed.
Porter opposes the opposable thumbs! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWAK0J8Uhzk
If adventure time taught me anything it’s that deer absolutely have hands
Could you teach a monkey to drive and follow all or most of the road laws?
Are they? We could make controls for deer drivers.
So people without hands cant drive no?
False they trained a do to drive a car
Bring out the dancing deers!
You could easily modify the controls
How about teaching a llama to drive, they said you could never teach a llama to drive
Fuck this is exactly the reference I was expecting
Well, if that is your measure of what counts as trainable no single animal is trainable...
When was the last time you saw how other people drive...? I'd argue they haven't been trained either.
Let’s try to not start a discussion about if people are animals or not ok?
Except we are, sooo....
"THEY SAID I COULD NEVER TEACH A LAMMA TO DRIVE!" "Baaaaaaa!" "NO LAMMA NO!"
“I like trains.”
Hello Mine Turtle.
I AM A STEGOSAURUS
THEY SAID I COULD NEVER TEACH A LLAMA TO DRIVE!!!
No one knows...
Pigeons were taught to guide bombs.
Yep. B.F. Skinner. And he tried selling them to the military. Would have worked too if they took him a bit more seriously.
There was that labrador that attempted assassination on someone with a gun. You can't tell the Russian spies didn't train it to do that.
Just like all those dolphins.
They’ve been trying for YEARS! Why do you think so many drivers are killed by deer every day? They just want a turn!
Read that as save a car for some reason.
Still made sense
I wish we could just train them to look both ways before crossing the road.
We don't have a good way to train them, yet. We've been trying to train humans for years, but most don't seem to get it. Maybe we'll figure it out one day.
Hell, train a deer not to run into cars! I’ve been hit from the back by deer.
Ain't no rule says a deer can't compete in Nascar
They said I could never teach a llama to drive
Or do taxes.
They said I could never teach a llama to drive!
THEY SAID I COULD NEVER TEACH A LLAMA TO DRIVE
BF Skinner trained pigeons to steer a glide missile.
A deer? Most people struggle to drive a car well...
And allow it to take revenge on humankind? No thanks
Glue his hoofs to the wheels and pedals and cut a hole in the roof so his horns have room. Hell damn sure drive it somewhere.
Unless its a stick shift, i guess....
What if it's a cookie car
Maybe not a car.
What about Seadoos?
You clearly don't take the same freeway to work, loads of people just stopping in the brights of thier cell phones.
It also depends on what it is and the reward, one of my madagascar hissers will stand up and look cute for food but if there’s no food it doesn’t matter what you do he’s not doing it lol
What is a Madagascar hisser, I looked it up and all I can find is a Madagascar hissing cockroach
You say cock's can't look cute?
Yea that’s the one, they are surprisingly adorable when you get to know their quirks and behaviours
(Before anyone says anything they live in the forest and eat fallen fruit and plant material, they don’t live in or infest your house or do anything nasty like people tend to associate with cockroaches, despite the fact only about 4 out of 4,600 species are actually pests, so don’t judge them too harshly)
In the case of Nara's deers, they very much want to eat you
You couldn't go two feet from the place you bought it from that you were assaulted, and if you weren't quick enough to tear off the strings holding the biscuits altogether, they would start with your clothes
Great memories though
I was just there a few weeks ago, if by "they very much want to eat you" you mean that they are basically like a poorly trained dog trying to get at the food in your hand, then sure.
I never had any try to eat my clothes or really even get aggressive. At worst they just tried to grab food from my hands if I wasn't paying attention.
I did see a lot of people that were terrified of the deer and would be running away from them any time they approached. That was pretty silly to see.
Same. They werent aggressive at all. They didnt even care about me until I got close to them, trying to feed them.
Also it was funny seeing people freak out when the deer just looked at them or walked near them.
Yeah I got my ass bit twice by those "polite" deer
Yeah, that place was amazing and all, but I was getting constantly bitten on my waist and arms because they were getting impatient. I left there with a lot of bite marks and nasty bruises. As you said, though, great memories. :)
Try to stop feeding these deer and see how polite they are.
Yeah, my buddy visited Japan for like two months in university and it was outside of a tourist season so those deer were fuckin SAVAGE they'd just swarm you and shove you and bowl you over and slap your arms over and over just on the chance that you're holding one of those cookies.
**and how hungry they are
Is that why infants are hard to potty train?
I bet you could train an ant to ride a Seado.
That's a texas size 10-4 good buddy
Try training my Husky then
Some animals only ever learn the “kill you to get food” trick, that’s all.
Barely. There's a reason that after thousands of years of animal husbandry, there's only a select number of animals that are tamed.
Yeah, right. The deer here is not "polite". It is just conditioned/trained to do that for food
Oohhh that's why my cat doesn't play fetch yet.
More like how hungry they are
This includes the human animal.
This is in Nara and those deer are dickheads.
Is that Nara? The deer are super cool until the crowd runs out of cookies. If you're the unlucky soul to give them the last cookie after the rest of the crowd is out, just fuckin' haul ass toward the temple. Let somebody else deal with buying the next handful.
This video clearly shows how Japanese deer can be highly aggressive.
Holy shit that is funny.
That show is great. I'm not even into anime and it's one out of two I'd reccomend to everyone.
The other one is Monster with Johan Liebert and whatever the doctor's name is - can't remember right now.
Kenzo Tenma is the protagonist’s name. Monster is fantastic. The manga by Naomi Urasawa is masterful.
Awww yeah... what are some other anime?
I mean, there’s a looooot. It’s an entire medium, so whatever might interest you would vary quite a lot depending on your personal taste in Movies/TV. In general, I would highly recommend any of the movies directed by Satoshi Kon: Perfect Blue, Millenium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and Paprika.
I’m very confused as to what I just watched. Why did that man backflip face plant off of a statue? What is this
Nichijou an anime about 3 high school students doing what teenagers do with the flair of japanese absurdity. Pretty funny series imo.
IIRC didn’t the animation studio doing it get a higher budget than usual for a slice of life anime and that’s why they went all out?
Not quite, it's just that the studio that did this has some really talented staff, their budget weren't any different than the average anime.
That's KyoAni for you, one of the best anime studios around.
unfortunately also the one that had the big arson tragedy recently where dozens of people died
It was very enjoyable to watch. I’ve never been interested in anime and have frankly avoided it, but I was pleasantly surprised.
"Nichichou" (Everyday life) an anime that basically just parodies tropes seen in other anime. Over-the-top reactions, hidden super-abilities (Principal have pro-wrestler skills), etc.
Nichijou is a treasure
I see Nara deer posts, I hope for the Nichijou deer video. Nice work
First thing I'm doing when I go to japan is getting a deer pet
That’s not Japan, that’s America. Why else would the principal be wearing a bulletproof vest?
*Lucky Star flashbacks intensify*
My experience was that they were chill as long as they got cookies with some regularity. They have limited patience. Take too long getting the next cookie out of the package, they get restless. They get the idea that you're holding out on them, you're in trouble.
"This is two cookies less than last week, Haru. That is extremely disappointing. I come back by next week, and it's one of two ways: either I get four cookies, or you get four hooves. Your choice, Haruchibi."
Can confirm. Got nailed in the balls by a thankfully well sanded dear horn.
Hello fellow old weeb. How fares life?
Back to the basement with you!
I am too old for the basement. GET OFF MY LAWN!
Weeb life is over. I’m living in another world now.
How’s the WiFi in the other world?
Yeah agree. Witnessed some poor kid get swarmed by a bunch of deers trying to chew on his backpack strap
I saw one swipe the JR Pass out of a girl's hoodie pocket. The resulting tug of war was pretty funny to see.
If anyone is reading this and headed to Nara, if you hold your ground you tend to be better off. It's the people who ran or tried to back off who got swarmed way more than if you stood still.
when i was there, some small old chinese lady got swarmed by deer because they heard the crinkling of her cookie package. dont know if she made it out, i bailed.
those deer are vicious man
Every man for themselves!! We are out of cookies!!!! RRRUNNNNNNNNNN!
Only the strong will survive
I had a similar experience. The ones near the wafer carts were the most aggressive. Some of them will follow you around if you have some in hand.
I liked to give it to the ones that didn't chase you. There were some older ones sitting at the gate to the temple that were so chill you could pet them. It was a lot of fun. You just have to avoid the crowd.
My dad was chased and nipped in the butt by a deer in Nara. He managed to get away only because another deer came up and mounted the deer who was chasing my dad. One of the funniest experiences of my entire life.
"RUN, I GOT THIS!"
My experience was the opposite. After lunch time we bought more cookies and literally could not find ANY takers. People were just throwing their whole bags of cookies on the ground giving up because no dear would eat them anymore.
So you recommend going in the morning?
Yeah get them when they're hungry for the optimal experience. It was super hilarious earlier in the day.. after lunch time they were pretty much doing their own thing.
Morning also means less crowds
Damn, when I went they were following us and getting a little aggressive about it.
Yeah for sure. I also got footage somewhere of them duking it out with each other! Nara is a must.. God I miss Japan.
lol yes I ran out of snacks and they started gently nibbling my legs. it didn't hurt, but it was VERY startling
You know it! One thing I never knew about deer is that their antlers are fuzzy— kinda like a peach.
They start out that way, then all that fuzz comes off in a bloody mess
Ohhh, also like whenever I get a haircut.
You should find a new barber
Antlers grow covered in skin and very short velvety fur. At some point in the year that skin is shed (this gets bloody, but the deer are apparently nonplussed by this) exposing the bare antlers.
When I visited Nara, all the deer had their antlers cut. The same when I went to Miyajima, although maybe I saw one or two deer in Miyajima still with their antlers.
I think it's for peoples' safety.
edit: There is a yearly Antler-Cutting Ceremony, it's happening in a few days actually. 12 Oct
I was there recently and, while there were many deer with their antlers cut, there were several that had their full antler in tact.
Got my ass cheeks bitten so hard by these guys
Yep, your jacket gets chewed on and if you're really unlucky like my ex, you get an antler headbutt in the back.
Yes lol I got myself lifted off the ground a bit by one the first time I went there. Was one of the best things to do in japan if it’s your first time there.
In Miyajima (near Hiroshima) there's also a lot of deer but they were far from aggressive, most of them just hanging out or sleeping
Yeah a deer in Nara ate my map once.
I also witnessed one eat a bride's dress.
So true. A buddy of mine had his lunch in a plastic sack, those deer kept mopping at the sack as he walked by until it tore open 😂
That temple was pretty badass though. I just remember how huge it was when looking across the courtyard.
Is this another animal island? Is it Japan that has that bunny island? I wonder what other ones they have lol
very true. I didn’t want to buy the cookies so I was feeding them some dried fruit I had but when I was out they went after my coat, my paper shopping bag, and my camera strap. No harm done in the end, but it is kind of nerve wracking having 7 deer trying to eat you
And people easily forget that they are wild animals. I saw a toddler play “hide the cookie - you can’t have it” with a buck and promptly got butted right off her feet.
a deer in Nara literally ripped my pants off cause I was teasing it with the cookie. I spent like 4 days there it was AWESOME and want to come back one day
I can't be the only one that was anxious that the dear would smack the dude's head with it's antlers
They apparently get really stodgy when you don't have any to give them.
Fully believable. That's why people aren't usually encouraged to feed wild or feral animals because when you're the food source it relies on and you don''t have any food, they get reeeeaaal mad.
makes sense. I saw this video of a lady lure a monkey in by holding out her hand only to have nothing to give it. monkey got real mad and smacked her face
As he should have.
in Nara they are not discouraged.
usually. It's not discouraged in Nara because of tourism but that still doesn't make it advisable or a good idea.
Can confirm, I got nipped so many times after I ran out
I found them to be ok unless you teased them.
They wouldn’t harass people for simply not having snacks, but I saw a few people teasing them (holding the snack out then pulling it back) and they got fucked up a bit.
Saw one woman do that and quickly get surrounded. They chewed up her handbag and emptied it out. Couldn’t help but find it hilarious.
I've never met any Japanese deer, but the deer I saw/interacted with in the North Florida/South Alabama area can get pretty aggressive.
That's what i was hoping for.
Or be the only one who knows that the deer isn't bowing, but is in a defensive stand each time the man bows his head...
I was there a few weeks ago, and some of them seem to forget that they have really long antlers. Had a few of them get too close, bow and get their antlers stuck in my clothes :D
The ones with large antlers know what they're doing with them and tend not to hit people with them.
The Does or ones with small antlers will headbutt the shit out of you, instead of bowing they just hit you with their head and look at you expectedly for food.
Those deer are not always polite: Source, bite shaped mark from getting bit by one.
I would like to provide additional evidence that they aren't always nice. Here's the moment one decided it wouldn't wait for me to present my biscuit.
Wow, I cannot believe we trained deer to know that the best way to get a cookie is to get in our pants.
You look like you’re doing the dance from Spider-Man 3 when he exits the building
What can I say, something about a wild animal pressing its hoof basically into my groin for that first time just really makes you feel like Tobey.
I can see the hooves similarity, but the deer really do have much nicer teeth than Kirsten Dunst.
Pics or it didn’t happen.
it is on the side of my boob, so sorry hahah. I do actually have a different picture of me actively getting bit though https://imgur.com/a/IAn6xA4
deer and goats look so unsettling. i think it is the eyes
he does look quite... crazed?
Goats have horizontal rectangle pupils so maybe that’s why
That's just because they are in sage mode!
Like a doll's eyes
....but the karma.....
Yeah we’re gonna need to see your titties then. For science. Or it didn’t happen. For science.
Hahaha this made me laugh actually
Hard enough to make you wanna hit my dms up? Maybe? Yeah?
One bit me in the balls. They are really aggressive and will chew your pockets even though there is no food.
They bite because you give the cookie without bowing. My sister gave cookies directly and got bited, they know that you are a noob and they rush to get the cookie.
I'm impressed that it was so polite. When I was in Nara the deer practically mobbed me as soon as I bought some of those deer cookies. One bit some small holes in my shirt and ruined it.
Yeah, after my first time at Nara I learned to never wear anything I don’t mine a deer shewing on. They’re aggressive little guys
Well there’s definitely one thing I don’t mind them chewing on and it’s it’s definitely not any of my clothes.
I got bitten by one while I was there. Cute and mean little deers.
The holes in your shirt should allow you to run quicker.
Unfortunately, I threw it away once I got back.
I was there this summer. Have no clue how tf this guy is not getting swarmed by hungry deers because when i was there they had a built in radar that spotted everyone carrying something edible in the radius of a mile.
"Polite" is a stretch. My father-in-law and his wife fed these guys this summer... She got bitten on the ass by one of these "polite" dudes when she ran out of cookies.
It's in Nara, they'll come at you in numbers to bite your pockets (and legs). Cookie sellers keep them at a distance using straw brooms. They're cool but some are full of parasites. Good memories.
They're cool but some are full of parasites.
They're cool but some are full of parasites.
Sounds like my local game stores.
What kind of parasites?
I lived in Nara for three years and never heard about parasites. It might be a new thing, but on the other hand, I stopped caring about the deer pretty quickly.
Ticks. Being mammals and living near the forest, it's kind of inevitable
Hmmm...I camped all the time in those woods and never got one on me, but that was 20 years ago. Always good to know about ticks! Multiple family members have had Lyme disease. Seems to be a relatively new thing there though.
Dad, what are you doing on reddit??
Oh deer, my kid has found me
D'oe! My anonymity
at least you know your dad and he didn't just pass the buck
If you've been to this park, you know those damn deer are anything but polite. If you aren't watching them, they WILL come up and nip you in the ass or rifle through your pockets if you don't immediately cough up a cookie.
As I left Nara Park, I saw one rip apart some poor schoolgirl's paper bag for the sole crime of not noticing him.
Deer: "I do the thing, I get the food. People are dumb."
i love that the deer know the rule of threes when accepting gifts in Japan
If this is Nara, I was there last summer. I ended up getting mobbed and chased by the deer because I ran out of cookies lol.
The greatest crime in deer culture
Just wait till they run out of treats and the deer keeps bowing for more treats, they tend to get a little moody.
Actually went to this park fairly recently. The deer there get real agressive if you don't acknowledge them after the first few bows.
They kinda do mention not to do this though all over the park.
"Want lunch right now?"
"Wait a minute then"
What’s up with the guy in the back slapping the deer in the face?!?!?!
I’m glad that I wasn’t the only one that noticed that.
Came here looking for others who saw that; disappointed all the same 🦌
Awww look at his lil white butt
How can you see it? He’s wearing shorts.
Giving me flashbacks to being chased around Nara by a herd of deer because I had food for them 😂
Those are some chonky deer boys
That...... is one chonk of a deer
All those cookies probably.
Oh yea I’m sure. I was on some island in western Canada and the deer there had never been hunted and would take treats like this from tourist and they were pretty hefty. Not sure what the tourists were giving them was healthy for the deer or not but they were round.
i have been there before. some of the deer are not polite at all haha. one almost chewed a hole in my shirt and pants to get to the cookie. i saw a big buck knock a girl over as well.
Leave it to Japan to hunt whales and dolphins to eat, but fed deer cookies out if their hands. Have they never tried backstrap?
Feels like that guy is milking it a bit going for 5 bows, 1 was definitely sufficient. Still very badass
I only counted 4 bows, 3 if you dont count the first one because technically that was a pre bow.
I may be wrong, but I vaguely remember some Shinto shrines you bow three times to the gods lol maybe the deer was taught to bow very reverently?
What anime is this one?
Oh that’s just Tony Tony Chopper, he’s a great doctor
To my understanding deer in Japan are equivalent to squirrels or rabbits.
I CANNOT WAIT TO GO TO NARA
That’s cool and all but cookies are bad for wild animals teeth since they can rot their teeth and animals don’t brush.
These “cookies” are specifically made for the deer in Nara. They are not regular human cookies.
Deer are the some of the most adorable wild animals but petting them where I live will get you a disease faster than sticking your hooha in a crackheads hoohah
As cute as it looks they are mean MTF, I got bit on my belly by one of those fuckers when I was getting the cookies out, and had to kick the bastard to get it away from me.
These deer are aggressive assholes. Sibling just got back from a Japan trip. One deer in Nara bit them in the butt.
Yeah just look at the signs in the park https://images.app.goo.gl/ezvVmKZ6pNn7ndqz5
Japanese people (and wildlife as i can see here) are very polite and kind overal from my experience.
My family and I went to Nara to feed the deer and in a video my dad took, there are the deer bowing very politely to my mum for a biscuit, while in the background you can clearly see my brother get fully-body tackled by one while I, empty handed and having refused to even TOUCH a biscuit because I know these deer are massive pricks, am being chased by a mob of them.
You win some, you lose some.
How about my man in the back smacking that deer in the head?
Says someone who’s never been to Nara. I’ve got the bruises to show for it too.
That’s his Patronus now
Damn, even the animals are well-mannered in Japan.

Japan gets all the cool stuff.
Why'd he wait to give the cookie? Why not after the second bow?
Deer teaches human how to bow : Gets paid 1 cookie
Just waiting for the deer to gore that dude
That’s a fat deer.
What a dear
The deer in this park are usually not this polite. If you're not careful, you WILL get swarmed, and they'll start biting at your pants. They yanked my friend's phone out of his pocket.
That dude's bowing posture is for shit, I'm surprised the pretty animal didn't murder him
Japan is a magical place
'polite' is a stretch. This deer is trained.
All of a sudden I thought of this.
Animals can adapt to weird behavior when food is involved. My grandparents had a dog that, literally every time anyone was eating anything at the dinner table, would stand up on its hind legs, put its front paws together, and swing them up and down really quickly. This would go on for the duration of dinner.
Boy, Buckbeak has sure gotten small these days.
If these are the deer in nara Japan fuck them. The minute you run out of treats they harass you. I gave one a treat and the other standing next to it who didn't get one bit me on the ass when I walked away no joke. Then I hike up the mountain away from the park and see 2 deer messing with a older lady knocking her off her scooter.
The dankmirian people are so sophisticated that they bow before and after bowing
Well that's one way to get some head.
This is how I'm fed everynight
i heard from friends from japan that they. . .arent actually bowing, if you dont give the treat in time they will head butt you, and those things hit like a truck
Jesus even the deers bow
I read this as ‘bowling’ for a cookie
Am now only slightly disappointed 😂
This is actually the main reason I want to go visit Japan. I'm sure there is plenty of other great things to do. But not many public parks in the world with friendly deer just hanging out.
You're in for a surprise then
Just give the goddamn deer the cookie and stop making a jump throw a bunch of fucking hoops
Don't feed the wildlife.
They've also learned to use cross walks and wait for the signal.
One of them bit me in the ass when I ran out of cookies and tried to run away.
is that andrew fucking hussie
Lol they're not that polite. They will nibble on your pants pocket, hands, and pester you if they know you have it. Still cute when they aren't being an arse though. Source: I was there this past May.
I was expecting them to BONK their heads together
I need a deer
Ain't surprised by a polite Japanese deer
ITT everyone on Reddit has been to this random deer cookie temple in japan.
By the look of his sides, my mans been doing a lot of bowing.
Man, the deer I met were trained to kill for those cookies. They all came at me and as I backed up I fell into a water drainage ditch.
Was this at Miajima island? The deer population there is very tame.
Deers like ‘the shit i gotta do for some food round here’
gimmie my cookie u wanker. Fine I will do the party trick goddammit
Been here. A bastard bit my boob.
Must be in Nara. I was there last November and those Jerky Deers, will try to eat everything you have in your hands. Else they will try to get your attention by biting you. Besides the Deer, Nara was a blast to visit.
When I visited Nara the deer didn't bow to get my snacks, they just mobbed me... either this is something they learned in the last ~15 years or those deer didn't respect my authoritah 🤨
The deer in my neck of the woods just scramble to be hit by cars
He's now an anime prince.
Okay, but can we talk about the guy in the back who slapped one of the deer?
it woulda been funny if the deer rammed him after bowing
Wow I got kicked in the balls because i wouldnt give my cookie
Polite my ass, When I was there a year ago there was screaming children and people being chased by deer everywhere and they were aggressively nipping me for food. 10/10 would feed those cute deer again.
Was there about 2 weeks ago and my favorite moment was a little japanese girl screaming gomennasai as a deer chased her for the cookie she was holding.
That man in the back looks like he could get beat up by those three deer if he runs out of snacks haha
That deer dummy thicc tho
Wanna fight? No? Wanna fight? No? Wanna fight? No? Oh cookies! - Deer
Japan isn’t real.
Silly human bows for the deerest graces from the forrest god.
Wow, when I went to Nara, the deer (plural) saw that my wife buy shika senbei and literally tried to take her to the ground.
I've read this doujin and jacked off a lot to it.
Way to fuck up wild animals by feeding them. Very responsible.
This park is in a place called Nara, and these deers where just depressing. Fat as fuck, and all they do is constantly bow for the cookies.
They have place to run off fat
Is it bowing, or signaling the hooman to bring down the damn cookie so it can eat it. XD
There's a video of someone bowing to a deer and not giving it a cookie. It just kinda died inside...
Now suplex it >:D
That is a signal he wants to gore you with his horns.
Where can I get your deers? All my deers are assholes that eat my flowers and run in front of my car at the last second.
My experience: they have 0 chill, one bit my gfs ass and another ate a map in my back picked. Still cool though.
Not sure if big head or small body
What a dear!
Wild animals are not pets, that thing will flip on you without thinking twice about it.
Yey for taunting animals for Insta!
That little gay tap by the guy in the background...

"Arise a knight, ser."
"Knight me again."
Munches on treat regally
The (totally wild) blacktail deer in the PNW will nod back at you, but most people don't know about it, so it's a really cool thing that goes unnoticed.
I loved hanging out with the deer in Nara, until I found out I got bit by a deer tic and got Lyme disease wooooo!
A white dude in japan bowing
Most definitely a weeaboo.
The deer in Nara are super cute but also super lazy.
They know humans will crowd around them to feed them so some of the don't even bother getting up for you and just sit there waiting for you to come.
And I don't, I fed every damn deer in my eyesight haha.
I got bit on the had by one of those hungry bitches. Cute but mange and bad manners are also there
Those deer are not polite. They will bite, butt, and steal if you aren't vigilant.
If you go to Nara, here's a tip. For gods sake, keep those wafers hidden immediately once you buy them. There will be a gang of lazy deer near the vending spots - if you let them see you with wafers, they will swarm you and force you to give them all away.
Buy it, bag it, and book it. Then give it to a nice calm deer that's not greedy as hell like the vender vermin.
Also, don't try and pet their head between their antlers. I tried that and they didn't like it (understandably), and their reaction was to twist their head, nearly trapping my arm. It felt like they could have broken it if I was unlucky.
Harry Potter and BuckBeak look a lot different in real life... but always remember, hippogriffs are very proud creatures!
I hate those deer. There are so many that are super aggressive because they want snacks. They will literally surround you and pester you for snacks and one even bit my butt trying to get snacks
and one even bit my butt trying to get snacks
and one even bit my butt trying to get snacks
Nara is a cool place to visit.
Thank you U/ 10 very cool
Where is this this is great!
Nara Dear Park.
Is it a challenge? It is a challenge! OK let's fight. Ah no.. Food.. Nom nom
What else do they know 🤔
In my experience the deers were pretty polite.
They bow for cookies and let you pet them.
Yes, they can be a little stubborn, but they were never aggressive. They search you for snacks, but surrender pretty fast if you give them nothing.
Loved the park, I spent a lot of hours there.
Are they polite or entitled?
In the words of Larry David, that is a shit bow
I thought it would go a little Nichijou for a bit.
I wouldn't go as far as to call the deer in Nara polite, but they are friendly.
Been to Nara, fed a bunch of these to deer. A lot of them like to bite at you to give them the cookies. Cookies in your pocket? Expect some to come try to bite your pocket to get more.
It looks cute and all, but those deer in Nara are obnoxious. I have a history of being bitten by animals and one of those deer bit my inner thigh. Should I give you list? Deer, llama, ostrich, sea urchin (take note here, not a simple jellyfish) and then normal things cat, dog. My mom is the better storyteller of the ostrich. But, the thing put my while hand in its mouth. I was a stupid 4 year old and probably deserved it. No Harambe action was taken.
Why can i hear the motion. Wtf
Man those deer are tiny. Living in North America has really shown me that animals hear are huge
I went to Nara to feed the deers. A nice older fellow was handing out seeds to tourists including myself, which deer were much more crazy about. I can't imagine daily biscuits would be very healthy for them.
I saw this and in my head sounded the song checker dance
My dumbass read bowling instead of bowing and I thought I was gonna be able to see a deer get a strike
Animals can learn everything that's anatomically possible.
Was there about a week and a half ago. Deer wanted cookes so bad he went for my dick. Twice.
Are deer like stray cats in Japan?
That's how you get Lyme's disease
Dude not even bowing right smh
That's not a gazelle
That’s a dog with a Halloween costume on
Is this in Nara?
I was there a few years ago
On the other the wooden gate-like structure, basically from there to the bus lot they are not so nice.
I've been there. Those deer will fucking chase you if you don't hand over them cookies
That third bow is definitely like 'yeah, alright mate just give is the biscuit. God damn humies'
I went to this same place once, but instead of bowing, the deer bit me and then all his friends joined in, and I got mobbed.
sorry to tell you this, but if you don't feed them they'll get angry and chase you.
Jealous! I went first thing in the morning, and they bit my butt so I would drop my biscuits.
I accidentally read it as blowing
If you are ever in the Wisconsin Dells and want a similar experience, check out Deer Park. I do know it's seasonal so you may want to look it up before making a trip.
When I tried to feed the deer, one ended up poking me in the butt with it's horns. Your experience is much cuter.
No I’m all for this rule
Those deer are not polite, they will chase you for cookies and they bite hard
What sort of heaven is this where the deer chill with regular folks?
This didn't work so well for Shino
I would love it there
Okay, he’s invited to my wedding
Ah yes, giant horned rats
Wow animals are amazing.
This isn’t eye bleach, that deer will straight up try to murder you once he realizes you’ve run out if biscuits buddy
I’ve seen one hit a kid because he was running around with the treat.
Thats not how you bow...
If the antlers poked his face this video would be on r/Whatcouldgowrong
Deer park!! Oh they really love the wafer biscuits :) just be careful if the soft pebbles..... poop. Lol
I think it’s head banging
Wonder what cookie fed venison is like. Their backstrap would be very tender
nah they're headbanging
Deer smashes through salon window
awww this is so cute!
fattening him up for thanksgiving
That deer was giving him shitty bows.
Now I'm no expert, but when a deer bows its head I'm pretty sure that means it's going to charge at you.
Usually yes, but these deer are very accustomed to getting food from people there in Nara. They more than likely have adapted this behavior to emulate what humans do in an attempt to get those sweet, sweet deer cookies.
They're bowing for cookies, Pavlovian as heck.
