    Country file, fallow stag rescue........

    Got to love the bbc getting terminology right when rescuing a 'fallow stag' who'd caught his antlers in some blue nylon rope.......
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    Seemed 50/50 wether the rescuer got an injury as the Buck made off..
    Blessed be the sheeple for they shall inherit bugger all...

    +1! The buck didnt look too stressed when the numpty jumped on him! Then the buck nearly gauged him... Now that would have been entertainment!

    Thought they were a bit low on protective gear in this age of health and safety...didn't even have safety glasses...could have saved an eye injury.

    Ok, calling it a stag is bad but what do you expect.

    To be fair, and I have been involved in similar situations more times than I care to remember, I thought they did ok. Yes, they could have moved a bit more decisively at the beginning and the assistants were getting in a bit of a panic at one stage but the end result was successful.

    If anyone is open to criticism it is the person who put up the poxy blue rope! That and orange plastic barrier fencing were the bain of my life when I worked in deer parks.

    Adam Hensons bit was good as always; if he ever leaves Countryfile it won't be worth watching.

    Watched it as well. He was a good buck and nothing wrong with him other than having rope around his antlers. They were able to capture it, remove the rope and release back into the herd for him to do his stuff. Yes more dangerous than releasing a sheep - which are always getting caught up, but the team looked as if they knew what they were doing.

    You don't need to shoot every beast, just because you can. That buck trotted off quite happily none the worse for his experience.

    +1 on all counts Glyn. I thought that they did rather well to release the buck without injury to themselves or the animal.
    Confronted with a similar situation I'm afraid that I would have bottled it and immediately have reached for the rifle.

    I rather like Adam too, perhaps it's just because of his dogs.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
