We’ve all done it – taking selfies with a famous attraction then sharing them with our friends.
One tourist in a Japanese city got a bit of a shock when she took a selfie with a deer, an iconic symbol of Nara.
In the picture, the animal appeared to be fed up with being included in photographs, casting a despising look at the woman.
Where is my food? A deer from Japan has become famous online after appearing to despise a Taiwanese tourist for taking a selfie with it
The selfie was posted to the internet yesterday by a user, known by her screen name of Hong Qiqi, to Taiwan member-only Facebook community ‘Baoliao Commune’.
It is thought that Hong Qiqi is the woman in the picture, which had been taken at Nara Park.
Along with the picture, Hong posted: ‘Am I not good at taking selfies?
‘It’s essential to take pictures with deer since [I am] in Nara. However, this deer did not cooperate.’
Sacred: Deer, considered to be sacred by the locals, are a popular tourist attraction in Nara
The picture was then re-shared by Baoliao Commune to its public page and has since gathered around 12,000 reactions.
An editor from the online community, known by her screen name ‘huang jin mei li hao’, told MailOnline that she found the picture extremely funny.
She said she and her co-workers discussed the picture and decided to share it on the community’s public page for more people to enjoy.
She added: ‘I feel like the deer was saying: “How dare you didn’t bring food to me?”‘
Many of the community’s fans were amused by the deer’s look, claiming the animal must have got bored of being used as the background for selfies.
A user named ‘Elbert Lin’ wrote: ‘The deer must be thinking: “Here comes another tourist who wants a selfie but doesn’t feed me.”‘
While user ‘Chuan Bo’ said the animal was fed up with all the tourists as each of them seemed to want a selfie.
‘Junhao Huang’ commented: ‘It’s common sense that treats must be offered first.’
