Animals Video

 This rutting stag is really having a bad hair day.

 Photographer Sławomir Skukowski, 33, captured the hair raising moment at the edge of a forest in Włodarka, Poland. 

 The stag had just won a fight before jumping through some reeds and walking straight towards Sławomir. 

 Filmed on October 20, the stag stood just 10 metres away as he struggled to see through the grass. 

 Sławomir said: “I’ve seen something like this before but never got the chance to capture it on video. 

 “It was something beautiful and amazing, I was very happy that I could watch it live and record it. 

 “When the stag was walking in my direction, the adrenaline was pumping around my body and my heart was in my throat. 

 “It was an amazing experience.”
