    Been told they are in silver dale not confirmed though. Found a dead one in preston recently, but after further investigation found some in a private collection quite close

    Some years ago one was found dead near Appleby, Cumbria.
    They had some in the park at Appleby Castle in the old days.

    A private nature reserve in the Hawkshead area closed and I was told some had been released into woods in that area.

    HWH.

    if its round barrow I would expect they have escaped from the local wild animal park. After all a Rhino managed it so why wouldnt a Muntie!!

    Maybe if you did more looking than just wandering, you may see more

    I live in silverdale as a few chap's know from here i have never seen muntie's or heard of anybody see in them. Roe, red and fallow is all i have seen. Quite a few people mistake them for young roe. Even when i speak to Mr Standing he has never heard or seen munite's.
    If any body who lives close by or visits wood like to meet up for a chat and a beer in my good local that wood be great if we could get few together.
