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.

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 .

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.

Amazing how people can take up extreme positions about things like shooting, hunting, horse racing, eating meat and other relics of yesteryear. Cook is a farmer as was I and he was probably brought up to learn to shoot from an early age. There are plenty of things that go on in cities that country people are horrified by but they don't make a big fuss about it.

Alastair Cook: "I'm the daddy now"
Ashes hero Alastair Cook is fed-up of his nice guy image. But as these new photos show: the choir boy has grown up, and small mammals better beware.
Newly crowned Ashes hero Alastair Cook is in no mood for compromise.

Despite his record-breaking run of scores in Australia, the baby faced Essex batsman feels that some people had been secretly questioning his strength of character.

Not any more, they won't.

Cook proudly poses with a Chinese Water Deer that he had shot with a gun. A real gun. It's dead and Cook is the one who killed it.


"Take that!" A pumped-up Cook celebrates another Ashes ton by pretending to punch an antelope in the face.
"Some people used to think that I am a bit 'soft' or a walk-over, just because I went to a posh school and sung in the choir. There were those who suggested I might be a bit boring. They must be eating their words now. I have got news for them. No-one disrespects Alastair Cook any more."

The Chinese Water Deer can grow to nearly two feet in height. It was introduced to the UK just over 100 years ago. They are not even British. They have been going round ever since asking for trouble. Well, now they have found it.

The beast found to its cost what a hard–nosed sportsman Cook has become.


"Look out ewe!" Cook and his girlfriend warn the local sheep not to underestimate him ... or else.
"It was in the wrong place at the wrong time" laughed Cook. "I felt like killing something and it just appeared from nowhere. I was in the mood and nothing was going to stop me. I thought about killing it with my bare hands but I didn't want to risk getting an injury so near to the World Cup so I blasted it in the gut instead ... with my gun. Tough luck Bambi," chuckled the test opener.

After having his photo taken with the bloodied tiny deer Cook put the freshly dead animal in his pocket and dumped it by the roadside.

"There is no place for weakness, either in cricket or the animal kingdom. The deer hadn't prepared itself for a a fight and it paid the price," added the England captain in waiting. "I might kill another one tomorrow, or maybe a sea lion or a pit pony. There's a mallard in the village where I live that has questioned my ability. It's eaten its last bit of stale bread that's for sure."

I am told by some that they need to be culled and I have to accept that. But why look so fkin happy about taking a life. Scum.

Nothing wrong with a bit of deer hunting. My brother's daughter, 11, is also in such a pose. My brother has probably killed over 20 deer in the last 10 years. We eat them too. Real nice venison steaks.

Give Sir Cook a break. Maybe he's not a saint like you want him to be.
And knighthood is just a way for the royalty to stay relevant. Don't think too much about it. Gotta give it to someone.
