Sneaking Up On The Deer And Tripping Them Up Is A No No!

One of the photographs taken by the family during their walk in the Vianden forest shows an unusual sign. I asked Himself for a translation of the text and he said that says ‘Give the animals space to live”. Clearly if you are out on these paths walking your dog, mountain biking or walking, then the idea is that the local wildlife is left in peace. So according to the sign,  sneaking up on the deer and tripping them up is frowned upon! Personally I think that the deer in the picture fell over because he hit the red edge of the illustration he was in (just joking!). The only wildlife they encountered was one dog being walked in the forest… it was a very warm day so probably the deer were taking  nap and waiting for the cooler end of the day to come out and forage.

  1. I was thinking the same thing about the illustration! I’m not sure that’s not what it was going for, actually 😉

    • Carrie,
      I think they could have placed the deer in the illustration a little differently LOL.
      Probably the idea is just not to startle the local wildlife so that they don’t hurt themselves. With the noise our kids usually make on forest walks, I think the deer would have been forewarned LONG in advance and sought a quieter piece of the woods to hang out in 🙂
