Deer chases man up tree

A deer turned the tables on a man in London, chasing him up a tree in a park.

According to NBC News, the man got too close to a herd of deer in a west London park, and one of the male deer went after him. The man finally climbed up the tree to protect himself and witnesses called police.

Mating season for deer has begun in London, and park rangers are warning people to stay away from the animals during this time -- particularly male deer.
