  1. Hi Wayne,
    We met today ..... Secret World Wildlife Rescue came out to rescue the deer, deer go temporally blind when in shock/stressed. The deer is about two years old and they think the wounds are superficial only (amazingly), so when rehabilitated it will be released back to the area you found it. If you find any stressed wildlife in future they said to put a cloth over its head, as it calms them down and they think they are then safe. www.secretworld.org great charity for wildlife and good to know for walkers in Somerset areas.
    Keep on Walking
