A Pregnant deer which was caught in stock fencing on Wednesday has been rushed to a specialist deer unit at St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire, after she developed difficulties.
The female deer was found caught by her rear leg in stock fencing at Burwash Weald, near Heathfield, on Wednesday morning. It took four rescuers to carry her almost a mile across country to a waiting veterinary ambulance.
WRAS rescuers were called out to a deer reported to be caught in stock fencing at Burwash Weald, near Heathfield on Wednesday 10th May 2007.
Teams from Eastbourne and Uckfield were sent to the scene which was about a miles walk from the roadside. The female Roe deer had its right back leg strung up in the air where the barbed wire from the top of the fence had caught on the hoof and twisted trapping the deer. The poor deer had then struggled so much that her body ended up going underneath the fence.
