Red Deer

Just north of Copenhagen is a large park called Dyrehaven (literally the Animal Garden) filled with deer; sika, red deer and roe deer. And here you can get really close to the animals as they are used to two-legged spectators. The park was originally for the king only as a hunting reserve close to Copenhagen, but now it's open to the public. The photo here is of one of the red deer stags, the largest of the deer species in Denmark.
