A dog walker claims she had to run for safety after being attacked by a deer while out with her son and dogs on Wednesday.
Jane Watt Day was walking through the woods at Kelling Heath Holiday Park, near Holt, when she was confronted by the Muntjac.
She explained she threw sticks at the animal and screamed as she ran to safety with her son and two dogs.
And she is warning other visitors to beware.
In a post on Facebook last night (Wednesday), Jane said: 'Beware when walking through Kelling Heath Holiday Park woods. Myself, my son and two dogs got chased and attacked by an adult Muntjac today. Luckily my son picked up my little dog but then the animal still kept going for her.

'We managed to get away by screaming, running and throwing sticks. Unheard of in these woods apparently. Dread to think if I'd been on my own!'
