Thread: Roe fawn !

  1. #1

    Roe fawn !

    how about this for strange ?

    i was on my was home from stalking this after noon and i pulled up to pick up a phone call beside a sugar beet spoil heap and found a roe fawn , in full winter coat standing 20" high soulder to hoof and the body length is 27" from tip of her nose to her rump and a good body weight .

    there is very little body decay apart from the eyes missing so in estimating she has been dead about a week if that long ,

    any body local who wants to have a look is more than welcome !

    cheers

    Hi Lee

    I take it the neat little hole just behind the foreleg was due to Magpie or Crow

    max ,

    the mark behind the front leg is not a bullet hole ! the poor little bugger im thinking is the result of an RTA , with a serious belt to the head . the carcase is in quite good condition !

    cheers

    his point is probably the fact that they are usually born in may onwards
