People are being warned not to try and take selfies with deer in Dublin's Phoenix Park.

Visitors to the park can often be seen holding out food to deer to get the perfect picture.

Gillian Bird from the DSPCA says it's one of nature's most spectacular displays.

But she says people should make sure they're absolutely nowhere near when it happens.
