Newborn deer found freezing, rescued.

4 posts in this topic

A tiny deer weighing the same as a bag a sugar has been rescued from a back garden after being abandoned by its mother.

The muntjac, appropriately named Snowflake because it was found in icy conditions, was discovered outside a home in Sible Hedingham, near Colchester, Essex.

The owner took the freezing fawn to a nearby wildlife centre and staff there have been looking after him ever since.

That's the trouble with having no seasonal rut. Muntjacs are now the most populous type of deer in the UK, and despite it's cute, Bambi-like appearance, it can devour woodland plants at an unbelievable rate, destroy vital bird habitats and breed like rabbits! The bucks have sharp antlers and razor-like tusks with which they can (and do) quite easily see off foxes, dogs and humans! Get a couple in your garden - say bye-bye to all your flowers, plants and veggies...very rapidly!

This cute little kid will never be allowed to return to the wild, as it's classified as a pest.
