Muntjacs - little problem not sure solvable

Hi all
Its been a while, but in a moment of need I know who to turn to for advice.

Its for my Mum really, Muntjacs have been raiding the church grounds in the village and vandalising the plots. So far my Dads has been spared but I doubt for long. I did a google to see if I could find any plants/flowers they dont eat but seems they will munch on most.

Any more info you guys have I would be grateful to hear.

Many Thanks
Sara
Rare one

now ya got me thinking Bod Im only 10 miles from Woburn & 17 from Whipsnade.....maybe just maybe..

Woodsmoke, what a very kind & generous offer you are so kind but I would rather take my chances with the lions than be in wafting distance of Ferret poo.

Blimey LLP is he ok ?

Seriously though seems a real problem in certain areas.  We have a trail/walk starting in our village with pics of them on the direction signs  

They are the same size of my Lab, your friends Dad must have a humongous freezer.
