Thread: Lost the plot?

  1. #1

    Lost the plot?

    I got called out today to a injured deer(muntjac) she just lay head up but eyes closed by the road,i already had a large implement ready in my hand to put her out of her misery but she responded 2 the fact i was there.No signs of obvious injury apart from gash across the back of the neck and legs were intact.

    I HAVE JUST BEEN IN THE CHICKEN SHED WITH HER GIVING HER MORE GLUCOSE!(its now 12.40 and i have 2 stalkers for muntjac coming in a few hours)

    I feel that the outcome will be dissapointing but i will have tried and i have respect for my quarry.

    ps cant say i have ever watered a mature muntjac before but the teeth are amazingly sharp

    as the law stands (open to being corrected) its illigal to re-release a non indiginous species into the wild !

    but as you have broardcast on a open public forum your possible intentions , i would keep your plans for this deer to your self !

    just my opinion

    I beleive you will find it was also ilegal to move the animal in the first place although IMHO you have done what is moraly right. Not sure It is what I would have done though.

    As part of my university course we looked at non-native species.

    Please look at page 47 of the pdf from defra that can be found using the link below, it states if you want to release a Muntjac deer back into the wild you need to apply for a licence, otherwise it has to be kept in secure accomodation until it dies.

    mind you , if you did keep it in a secure inviroment like a fenced in wooded back yard it would be a hell of an asset for deer dog training ?
