I have regular access to a small herd of red deer in an enclosure. I have not spent long enough with them yet to be confident in my observations so could do with some advice. Today I spotted one that had moved away from the herd and did not eat when I took food down to them and in general looked rather unhappy. She looks slightly bloated and a little hunched and her ears were back. I have been feeding some sugar beet in addition to the odd large round bale of hay. In general the herd look in good nick always eat well and are friendly. She therefore stood out as having a changed her behaviour. The best way I can describe it would be to say that she looks like she is about to calve but obviously this is not the case. There are no handling facilities so whatever may be wrong with her will just have to run its course.
