Japan – A parking lot at Nara Park had unusual tenants recently. Instead of vehicles, around eight deer were spotted chilling in the area.
One Steve Eto took to Twitter on Sept 6 to share the photo, which has gone viral.
Nara Park is a popular tourist spot filled with friendly deer that are accustomed to being fed by visitors.
However, the Covid-19 pandemic and lack of tourists have forced the deer to venture out of the park searching for food.
It has then become a community affair to keep the deer fed and ensure they stay healthy.
According to the original poster, seeing deer around the area was a common sight; however, their choice of resting place was worth a photo.
It should be noted that the deer are quite large, a couple taking up more than half the width of a parking slot.
The tweet, which has over 195,000 likes and 37,000 retweets, has garnered witty responses from the online community.
“Don’t go to and leave school on a deer – a school rule at some schools in Nara,” said a netizen, jokingly.
An earlier post by Nara Park on Instagram highlighted the deer practising social responsibility and kept a safe distance from one another.
