The Roe Deers

Wanted, One very large garden for myself and my harem. Must have plenty of very expensive shrubs and flowers to keep us well fed during the winter. (We are fed up with eating yellowing grass that has no sustenance in it, and also, we are being reduced to eating ferns to survive).

 

It is not our fault that we enter your gardens and decimate your lovely flowers. We are being hounded from the moors and woods where we have lived for generations by punters with high powered rifles, who have decided that we are very nice to eat. At certain times in the year I am given a lot of hassle, and my harem also gets the same at different times, but we don't know who's time it is to be shot so we run like the clappers to escape. We get hunted day after day, and we are “fed up” making people “well fed”. It is time that we got a break, and give us peace to live our lives in a nice setting, so that is why I am asking for a “Des Res”. We, don't know that you want us to leave your flowers alone, we think that you plant them there for us, and we are grateful, then you run out of your houses and chase us away, and possibly into the sights of a rifle. We are in a “no win situation”. The only way to keep us out is to build “deer fences”, or is it “dear fences”? I'm not too sure. Please don't plant flowers that we do not like, as they give us the boak and trots, so a well balanced plant life with your grass being allowed to grow to six inches tall in the summer months will give us a bit of roughage, and will help us immensely.
Thanking you.

Roe Buck.
