Two deer were spotted locking antlers in what could have been a fight over territory on Nov. 1.
A video posted to YouTube on Monday shows the two bucks standing off in a Nanaimo driveway before they they take the fight into a neighbour's yard.
Michael Scott witnessed the fight, which spilled over on to his property as he was coming home for lunch, Global News reported.
“Both kind of let out a snort,” he said. “And then I saw a doe in the bush near them.”
Scott believes the animals were fighting over territory.
The bucks kept their horns firmly locked for about four minutes until they got tangled around a tree. One of the deer then chased his opponent over a fence and out of frame.
This is hardly the first time that humans have come so close to deer in B.C.
In another instance, a Ucluelet woman was allowed to keep Bimbo, a domesticated deer, as a pet after conservation officers initially told her she would have to give it up.
