The Fenton! video was watched by millions who found it amusing. This video shows the painful reality.

The problem with dogs chasing deer is that the dogs come back but for some strange reason the deer don't... and the dog owners don't get to see the damage they cause. Deer are routinely pursued over rough ground even at night; the dog owner sees nothing but the next day a deer is limping. In time many recover but every so often - as in this case - the injury is much more serious.

Shortly after the Fenton incident this mature fallow buck "Junior" fell victim to another dog chase and disappeared into cover for over a month. After a prolonged search he was eventually seen at night just before Christmas having sustained a broken metapodial bone, leading to necrosis and subsequent loss of the lower portion of his hind leg putting an end to his career in the park: a three-legged deer cannot hope to escape from ALL the dogs running loose in the park day and night and of course a fallow buck needs both his hind legs when rutting.
