These deer show no fear as they stand toe-to-toe and scrap it out in front of their family. The stags stand on their back legs and throw punches in a fight that lasted more than 20 seconds. The spontaneous brawl in Hampshire's New Forest was randomly sparked when one of the stags awoke from a quick nap and stood up. His opponent was quick to respond by throwing a few jabs of his own - entertaining the other fallow deer. One of the stags was ducking and diving to avoid being struck in the play fight, which took place at Bolderwood in the New Forest, Hants.<br />
