Volunteer rescuers are describing the birth of a baby deer as nothing short of a miracle after its mum's horrendous ordeal.

Button the miracle baby fallow deer rescued in October 2009 by East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS), who despite the odds, survived after being cut free from stock fencing which caused a nasty ligature wound around her stomach, was born 3 months later than normal, suffered from haemorrhagic enteritis, died and was resuscitated and lost the tips of her ears due to frost bite/hypothermia; has survived and now amazingly given birth to her own baby deer! » Read more

Jenson Button and a deer named after him called "Button" are helping to raise funds for East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS). Button the deer was rescued at just 2 weeks old last October. She had been caught in stock fencing and her rescuers were very concerned at her condition – at one stage it was doubtful that Button would survive the night. Named after Jenson Button who was crossing the finishing line to win the Formula One World Championship at the time she was rescued, Button made an astounding recovery and in April she returned to the paddock with a boyfriend in tow. "Our" little girl has certainly grown up! » Read more

A baby fallow deer caught in stock fencing would have died a slow death if it wasn't for volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS).

On Sunday 18th October WRAS rescuers were called to a footpath just off the A275 south of Dane Hill in East Sussex. Rescuers from Uckfield attended on site taking large stretchers and rescue equipment not believing the deer would be a baby at this time of year. The baby fallow deer was caught in stock fencing in the middle of a hedge and rescuers were surprised to find a 2 week old baby fallow deer suffering from hypothermia. Fallow deer are normally born up until the end of July, it is believed that some are born later but do not normally survive the winter not putting on enough weight. » Read more
