Anyone have any confirmed sightings of Munjac in the Croston / Bretherton area of Lancs?



I was passing through the area towards Burscough the other day and could have sworn I saw a glimpse of one..


​Any stalkers in this area use the site?

I live not far from there, Southport and I have never heard of them in Burscough. Definitely not round here and I have lived here all my life amd certainly never seen any in Southport.

Brother said he saw one on the edge of a field along side the M61 just north of Bolton. I saw it but just got a quick look as I was driving and other than saying there was something there I could not confirm Munty

And I just logged on to see if the word I had from a workmate yesterday, had any truth to it,....He tells me the M53 was shut for a short period yesterday,..... due to a deer collision,

Just done a bit of web crawling, looks like we have a Reindeer farm/ hire, outfit right on that same area, could be an escaped animal.
