Gardens and Deer by Charles Coles
Until recent years deer were shy creatures which rarely ventured into gardens, but a massive increase in the deer population, combined with increasing human invasion of their wild haunts, has forced them to move out and seek new habitats. This is an account of the reasons for their recent intrusion into gardens and comparative indifference to man. Based on the experiences of 300 gardeners over a period of three years, the book details deer behaviour in gardens, and explains how to recognize the different species, the signs of their presence, and the sorts of damage they do. Various deterrents and evaluated, and there are descriptions of different types of fences and other barriers.
