There's a doe with two yearling kids on my grounds here in Scotland, I noticed one of them is limping quite a bit on one of the hind legs, and when they ran off, this one lagged far behind. Should I observe for a week or so, and see if it gets better or worse before deciding to cull it? they are both quite healthy looking otherwise, so I'd prefer to let them grow up to be honest....
My concern is just that it might stop walking and lie down and not get up again, or it falls and gets entangled in a fence, since it is the hind leg, and that's the one used for hopping over the fences
what would you guys do,,,esp seeing that we are quite far into March...not sure if buck or doe kid, didn't have the chance to tell from a distance yet.
