A Nara deer has reportedly died after being fed a plastic bag from a foreigner who couldn’t find a trash can.

The foreigner had been walking around holding the plastic bag for around two-and-a-half hours before thinking of a brilliant solution.

“I had two options: carry the plastic bag until I got back to my hotel or feed it to a deer,” said tourist gaijin Graham Touke.

“I chose to have total functionality of my right hand.”

According to the Nara Deer Preservation Foundation, foreigners have been responsible for killing nine deer in Nara since March with plastic.
