dog owner has been banned from walking his pet lurcher in Richmond Park after it ran amok and caused a mass stampede of deer. The incident is a repeat of six years ago when a video clip of Fenton the dog chasing after deer in the same park went viral.
It’s already that time of year – Jesus Christ Fenton Day. Six years to the day since he chased a herd of deer through Richmond Park , Fenton’s legacy lives on. When the video was first uploaded on November 13, 2011, there was debate over the dog’s name – Renton, Benton or Fenton.
Some of those deer rose to fame nine years ago. You know which viral video we’re referring to don’t you? Yes, it’s the anniversary of FENTON ! The video which had us all rolling around laughing was uploaded to YouTube on this very day (November 13) in 2011 – and we’re still in stitches.
Even though the dog has now learned to leave deer scent trails alone, many dogs will still chase a running deer because of the excitement of the visual attraction. They will not necessarily equate the displeasure of following a scent trail with the sight of a running animal.
Yes dogs can run down deer .

One key to successfully training dogs not to chase is to teach them to curb their chasing impulse before it starts. But if your dog is already chasing something, don’t chase after them. It will only encourage your pup to think you are playing – and that will likely prolong the chase .
Now, when a deer bites you , it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and slide off to then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head–almost like a pit bull. They bite HARD and it hurts. The proper thing to do when a deer bites you is probably to freeze and draw back slowly.
The deer forcibly expels air through its nostrils like a greatly magnified sneeze. The deer blows when it detects danger at a distance. The noise warns all deer that something is radically wrong. The “sneeze” clears the nasal passages, and helps the deer sniff the air better.
