Has anyone in the North West lost a white fallow buck?
We had one turn up in our garden on Saturday morning (19th Oct) - he had evidently been on the estate for a couple of days but kept travelling and was shot Saturday afternoon about 5 miles south of us. He was reportedly not very wary of people so I'm not sure if he was a park escapee or just 'rutty.'
He is the first fallow ever spotted on the estate and we don't know of any white fallow within 50 miles. I guess he was travelling in pursuit of does as the rut should be in full swing now.
I live in the south west corner of the forest of bowland.
