People who have seen Walt Disney’s animated film Bambi would always associate a gentle manner to the lovable deer. However, two women found out the hard way that not all animals are as tender as the Disney favorite when a wild deer went berserk and injured them in Nikko, Tochigi Prefecture.
Authorities from the city have advised visitors heading to the area to be careful and vigilant for wild animal attacks. Two women, both 54 years old and natives from Taiwan, were hurt when a wild deer attacked them. Police said the two were waiting near the railway station in the city when the deer charged toward them. The wild animal then bolted into a nearby store where it left bottles broken, as they were smashed in its wake. Police issued the warning in preparation for the tourist season. A spokesman from the police said, “We wanted to get the word out and tell people what happened.”
Following places like Tokyo and Kyoto, the city of Nikko is a popular spot among tourists for its many sights. It is famous for its historical temples, which are now part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Shrines and mausoleum of shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate, which began in the 1600s.
