MOBILE phone footage of a Labrador chasing deer in a park while his irate owner chases after him has been viewed more than half a million times on YouTube.
In the 47-second film, the runaway dog takes no notice of the man who shouts "Fenton" in an increasingly angry voice as he helplessly chases after his pet - and the dozens of deer being pursued by it.
As the man, who is dressed in a beige coat and jeans, comes into shot he is also heard to exclaim "Jesus Christ" as more frightened animals join the herd and run across a road, forcing traffic to come to a standstill.
The clip, which has been seen almost 504,000 times, is titled Jesus Christ in Richmond Park, and has become a popular topic on social media sites such as Twitter.
It has also spawned several spoofs on YouTube, including one where the man's voice has been mixed with a scene from Jurassic Park where dinosaurs are being chased by T-Rex and one of footage of stampeding wildebeest.
