Today, I rescued a deer

A man out walking his dog knocked on our door this morning to say that there was a deer trapped in a wire fence in the field opposite and could I call the RSPCA or someone.

I can do better than that - I can walk down into the field and free it myself.

Its back leg was caught in a loop of wire and it was in a very twisted position.  It is fair to say that it wasn't very happy that I was approaching, but it didn't take me long to untwist the wire and free the leg.  As you'd expect, it rushed off in a panic (getting trapped in a dead end between two fences but eventually finding its way out again)

Never let it be said that I am not friend to man and beast.
