The moments a deer was rescued and released have been caught on camera by the rescue team undertaking the rescue in a field just behind houses in Buxted East Sussex this morning.
Rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) were called out after a resident of Buxted Court noticed the deer from his window up on the bank of a wooden stream opposite. The deer was thrashing around with rope attached to its antlers. It had already pulled several posts out of the ground but could not get free. Rescuers arrived on scene and had to negotiate the wooden bank, stream and barbed wire fence in order to get to the deer.
