Chinese Muntjac deer

Wandered onto the lawn and was clearly agitated at being out in the open. I took the photo through the kitchen window. The deer quickly disappeared into the bushes at the bottem of the garden.

When you say low to the ground, notice how it is lower at the front of the deer, the hind legs are much longer. This discrepancy is a distinguishing feature of muntjac. This is likely to be a female, no obvious tusks. Does not have the jizz of a young male.
