    Daily Telegraph Gets It Wrong

    Today's Daily Telegraph has an interesting photo on page 14. It is apparently of a red deer stag 300 metres out to sea, swimming ashore near St. Austell in Cornwall. The photographer said "It looked odd - like the creature from the deep. then when I managed to zoom in it became clear it was a red deer stag."

    Actually it is clear to anyone that knows anything about deer that it was in fact a nice roebuck. Interesting none the less.

    Was it "standing 9' tall and weighing 300lb"?

    Might have been the 'Emperor of Exmoor' on his hols.

    I surpose it is just as well that it wasn't "The Sun"! They might well have told us it was Rudolph taking his Easter Holidays!
