Rescuers have been left stunned and shocked after dealing with two severely injured dog attacked baby deer in 3 days. Volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) were called out to Earls Down (between Battle and Heathfield) on Tuesday after a retriever caught a fallow deer fawn and again on Thursday to a fawn which was caught in stock fencing and then attacked by a Labradoodle dog just south of Dallington (again between Battle and Heathfield). In the past month they have also had 3 other incidents to deal with too.
Volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) rushed to the aid of an injured badger at Seddlecombe near Battle yesterday (Tuesday 2nd March).
About 1.45pm owners of a small stables just south of Seddlescombe contacted WRAS after finding a badger with its rear right leg entangled in electric fencing. The power supply was switched off and the badger covered until rescuers arrived on site to help.
