Man climbs tree to escape rutting stag
A walk in a London park turned scary for a man who had to climb a tree to escape a rampaging stag.
The shaven-headed man was enjoying a walk in Bushy Park when he was accosted by an angry male deer in the middle of mating season.
His nightmare began after he accidentally walked in between two rutting stags, reports the Daily Telegraph.
As one turned his attention to an easier target, the unidentified man could be heard shouting: "I need some help here!"
He was then chased around a tree by the stag, before eventually climbing up its branches to safety.
A witness who filmed the incident explained: "He was just walking along the path and stopped, but the stag took his choice and went after the bloke instead.
"He just shouted "help, help" but you couldn't get close because the stag was just too hyped up."
The man was eventually rescued after the woman called police for assistance.
