The Bowing Deer Of Nara




The first time I saw the video above, I really did state out loud... WTF?!!? Really…

I don’t know why I’m so surprised, however.

I have taught my cat to sit with the same hand gestures I used with my dog, and am now trying to get my cat Freddy to Lie down… and stay… without rolling over onto his back.

The whole reward them with treat-thing is a fail with cats, as they aren’t that interested in treats… or at least Fred isn’t…

So… deer learning to bow, as in a monkey-see, monkey-doo way… well… maybe the buggers are smarter than we thought, right.

But why? Let's enter the brain of one of these Nara deer: 

They bow, I bow, they give me a treat.

If they don’t, I head butt them. 

Then again... for those of you who have gone to Japan and have accidentally bowed at someone who things you their superior... a bowing contest takes place.

You bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow (getting dizzy(

(For those of you who have not yet been to Japan, you might think I am over-exagerating, but I wouldn't do that in a million years)

you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow, you bow, they bow,

Somebody help
