A video of the moment a stag tried to eat from the bird table after wandering into a Scottish hotel garden has gone viral.

The footage of the deer was taken by Duncan Gibson, head chef at Glenfinnan House. Within 36 hours of posting to Facebook it had been viewed around 3 million times.

Duncan’s wife Manja said, “We frequently have deer wandering through the garden but not usually that close.”

“We were feeding the birds as we always do in the winter and could not believe what we saw that morning,” she told the Daily Record. “Very cheeky stag.”

The original Facebook video was accompanied by the post, “We thought we were just feeding the birds until ‘Royalty’ arrived.”
