    Deer attacks dogs

    Just saw this on the BBC website:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/b...ts/8303280.stm

    What's the betting that the next thing they will be asking for is for the deer to be destroyed

    One of my perm's rang me to tell me that a Munty Buck had done 2K's worth of damage to their prize Dane. Trying not to laugh l recommended a lead injection to which he dissagreed!!!!! 'We like seeing the deer about' was the reply -

    I'd want it's head on a platter if it'd done that much damage to a crufts dog of mine!

    - T!

    It's global warming that causes it, it certainly causes everything else on the BBC.

    If you wait a few weeks there will be a tax on it coming along to help pay for MPs expenses. The new "Chinese Water Deer Horn Tax."

    is this the same story that was posted a while back
    at the time they blamed a CWD in a local park
    will go look for that posting on which ever forum i saw it on
    as it seems to be very odd that it has arisen again with now a muntie included and a CWD with horns not antlers
    do they not actually know the real facts about what has caused the injury and what type of deer they are dealing with
    a CWD with horns and not antlers
    glad to see they know what they are talking about

    Maybe the Council need to clear out the rusty remains of the barbed wire fence in the thicket first?

    "Gussie, our dog, had scampered off into a thicket.

    "When she came back she had a big deep cut on one side and slashes on her leg.

    "We took her to the vet. They were really nasty, deep wounds."
    Deer? What deer?

    I only saw the story today, although it does say that ten dogs were injured last winter and spring.

    When I read them saying that "Chinese water deer are small and the only deer species in the UK to have small horns instead of antlers" I thought they meant that they were like Harpo Marx - parp, parp!!

    Isn't it nice to see that the media are at thick as the politicians in government. Where was the obvious message that dogs must be kept on a lead in areas of wildlife and farm stock.

    CWD with horns worth the license fee alone that one
