In Japan, wild deer bow, when people give them a treat

In the Japanese town of Nara people and wild deer live in harmony. Local mythology says a deity named Takemikazuchi, who arrived in the old capital on a white deer is his defender. Because of this legend the deer think there is a sacred animal for the past 1 300 years.

You might as well meet on the streets as a man, and real wild deer. The town even invented his own method to feed the "neighbors" — in every street there are vendors or machines for the sale of crackers for the deer.

Deer are so much used to people and socialized for hundreds of years the side-by-side on the same territory, in exchange for a treat worship like the Japanese.
