deer gives birth to two fawns at local wildlife centre
injured deer which is in the care of Secret World Wildlife Centre
in East Huntspill has given birth to two fawns.
roe deer, which was injured in a road accident earlier this year,
was brought to Secret World because of the centre's experience
in rearing the animals.
said that the heavily pregnant animal would have been unlikely
to survive without their help given its poor condition.
staff were delighted when the two cute fawns arrived.
World's Debbie OKeefe told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Miraculously,
the deer was in a poorly state, suffering from temporary blindness,
but gave birth to her first fawn and with some assistance a second
fawn was born a day later."
one of the fawns has not survived, however both the mother and
baby are both doing well. Without the help of Secret World both
mum and her babies would have perished."
centre is currently caring for several fawns and the animals will
be on show to the public this weekend (June 26th and 27th) when
Secret World will be holding two open days from 10am-4pm.
