|This large stag and his "harem" of hinds was taken at Richmond. He seemed quite content with his lot. The immature males seen on the edge of the group are tolerated as long as they don't come too close. A mature stag approaching the group would be challeged|
The following information is from the Aigas Field Centre website:
The Red Deer is the largest land mammal currently found in the wild in the UK, standing about 4 ft at the shoulder. The males are called stags, the females are hinds and the young are calves. They are a gregarious species and live in large groups most of the time. For over 10 months, the hinds and stags live apart with the young staying with the hinds until they are two or three years old. They come together for the rut in September and October, when a stag will guard a group or ‘harem’ of hinds for mating and the stags roar at each other to determine dominance.
