A baby roe deer has been found in a ploughed field near Chiddingly (Tuesday 10th May). The small baby roe deer weighing less than 2kg was discovered by a farmer yesterday afternoon. Rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) attended on site to assess the deer.
WRAS Rescuer Tony Neads has rescued 13 chickens from a garden in Chiddingly near Hailsham, East Sussex. The chickens were seen to fall off a lorry going to slaughter. These were certainly not an unlucky 13 chickens!
WRAS had been contacted by a lady who had found numerous chickens in her garden since yesterday after she witnessed them falling from a lorry, thought to be heading for slaughter. WRAS stepped in after no one else seemed interested in helping and Sussex Horse Rescue kindly agreed to take the chickens on at their Sanctuary in Uckfield.
