Sighting of injured deer prompts search of Burnham-On-Sea beach

Wildlife carers were called out on Friday afternoon (April 6th) after an injured deer was spotted on Burnham-On-Sea beach.

The animal was reported to Secret World Wildlife Rescue Centre by several people who saw it running in a distressed state across the mudflats towards the low lighthouse.

Secret World contacted BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) and a search of the beach and dunes was carried out using one of its trucks and two crew at 2pm, but no sign of the animal was found.

Any further sightings of the deer should be directed to Secretworld by calling 01278 783250.

BARB assists with animal incidents where there is a concern that people may put themselves at risk by trying to reach stranded animals.
