03/02/22 Oh Deer!

#MammalsInCemeteries is one of the theme’s in this month’s European Nature Almanack . This Roe Deer nearly finished up in one.

As Ishbel was driving home on Tuesday night, a pair of roe deer attempted to cross the road, directly in front of her. An emergency stop just prevented a collision with the first one, but the second one ran into the side of her car.

The deer went and sat by the roadside to collect it’s wits while Ishbel phoned the local vet. Luckily, the story has a happy ending as both Ishbel and the deer were able to leave the scene under their own steam, shaken but unharmed. Had Ishbel been exceeding the 40mph speed limit, the outcome could have been quite different.
