    It doesn't add up, red deer are usually far more susceptible to liver fluke than fallow. Are the National Trust folk just using this as an excuse to remove the fallow? Which species of fluke is suggested?

    We only have Fasciola hepatica as a fluke of significance in the UK. Rumen fluke is not an issue in adults.

    I have previously received a communication from a National Trust land manager outlining their hostility to the presence of wild deer.

    Ten fallow are wild while the red are park deer so maybe they're better able to treat/look after the Reds to reduce cases of fluke? Or it's just an excuse to get rid of the wild deer.

    Not sure how many people posting about this have been to Lyme Park?
    Ther are two areas in the park that are segregated by dry stone walls, the fallow live in an inner area that is close to the house and is accessed from the outer area via self closing gates.
    The Reds live in the outer area that is some small wooded parts and a large amount of moorland, there is no way the animals can come into contact as they are quite well separated, this may explain why this has only affected the Fallow.
    The photo with the blue line is the Fallow enclosure, the red line the outer wall with in which the Reds live.
