Villetta Barrea, nicknamed ‘deer town’, is a popular tourist destination with only 611 inhabitants.

Due to its clean air and unspoiled natural surroundings, the town often sees local wildlife wandering through the streets like this stag.

Facebook user ‘Mimmo Nuvoletta’ commented: “It is the smallest of the felines, but it does not realise it or does not accept it. Curious certainly, but without a hint of fear for what it sees as a giant armed with antlers.”

Netizen ‘Cinzia Grieco’ said: ” A wonderful and bizarre encounter.”

‘Antonella Tirendi’ wrote: “I have no words. What a sight!”
