By all means kill it, if it's deemed necessary, but don't smirk about it!

I won't be watching any matches with this **** in again.

A definite lack of media awareness here.A world class player should have had training to avoid this sort of picture.It does his image no good at all and in the future such things may come back to haunt him and indeed anyone in the 21st century who is in the limelight.

He could come to Western Australia. We pay people to shoot animals from helicopters here, which is much more fun.

It's not a juvenile deer, it's a Chinese water deer which is a small breed.
He was learning deer management a while ago so it's probably to do with that.
As pxb says, in Aus they cull a lot of roos, as they are a nuisance, and can cause a lot of accidents.

Cattle are worse. In the Pilbara a couple of weeks ago, cattle would wander out of the bush in front of me. Tricky when you are doing 150km/h. Roos don't even dent your roo bar. I once hit 3 in about 20 minutes. Just the smallest of dents. Cattle can make a real mess if you hit them at speed.

And I heard of a guy had an eagle feeding on roadkill come through his windscreen.

so brave of him to take on that defenceless animal with a weapon.
he must be very proud of himself.
Report kenny mann June 13, 2016 9:42 PM BST
He certainly looks proud. Not the depths Glen McGrath stooped to, but pretty sickening.

It's either a Chinese Water Deer or a Muntjac deer. Both are feral pests in the UK, without predators. Shooting is probably the only legal way to control their numbers. In Australia we would just poison the b_u_ggers.

where I live they are a serious road hazard, and their numbers are now out of control. Loads of dead ones by the roadside and having hit one last year I know how much damage they can do, and how little time you have to take evasive action....if theres any room to take evasive action. Still, a bit naive of Alistair Cook...thats if its a real photo and not just some troublemakers photo shop

and as for "trapped in a pen". That a 3 foot fence. A deer will easily clear 6 feet and more.

Easy when the wildlife is cute and harmless. Not so easy when much of it can kill you in a variety of ways.

Its not Mr Cooks  fault your DNA is all wishy washy ,leave the bloke alone .

Wild Venison has at least had some sort of wild life before being harvested ,this as already pointed out is a Chinese Water deer ,non native species .

A cousin of Rudolph, as it's name suggests the Chinese water deer is not originally from around these parts. However the UK population of the species now forms more than 10% of the world population - more than in their native China, where they are declining.
Unlike other deer species, male Chinese water deer don't grow antlers, instead having tusks (modified canine teeth) which are used for fighting. They stand 50-55cm tall at the shoulder and have large round ears.
Less often seen than our other small non-native deer the muntjac, Chinese water deer like wet, marshy habitat and shy away from more populated areas. They are best seen at dawn and dusk in the Norfolk Broads. The height of the rutting season is November and December, where males use their tusks to fight for mates and territories.

Stop trying to pretend man is not a hunter ,its in our blood and nowt wrong with hunting ,fishing and shooting ,perfectly natural pastime .

I've always maintained I wouldn't eat anything I wasn't prepared to kill myself.

Good job I don't like bear meat.

When wildlife reaches unsustainable or nuisance proportions, I would rather see them culled in this way than have them torn apart by packs of hounds.
