Early on Friday Morning - 20th June 2008 - a pregnant fallow deer was found on the A22 Uckfield Bypass near the East Sussex National Golf Course. East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) attended onsite and Sussex Police even closed the A22 for safety during rush hour whilst the deer was rescued and loaded into one of WRAS’s veterinary ambulances.
Volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) have had an extremely busy start to 2008 and over the weekend over 70 phone calls were received reporting casualties.
"Normally at this time of year our average is more like 5-10 calls a day, this is over 3 times that number." said Trevor Weeks founder of East Sussex WRAS.
