The deer that doesn't want to be caught! – Tricky Muntjac Rescue

The deer that doesn't want to be caught! - Tricky Muntjac Rescue
Spread The Viralist

Simon and Sean were called out to attend to a muntjac deer that was injured and, now, stuck in a residential garden.

The homeowners had seen blood on the ground, where the deer had been running; the deer was very stressed by the homeowners’ dog’s barking.

A very tense and risky rescue followed, as catching a muntjac is like trying to catch a bolt of lightning!!

  1. The abject terror these animals experience is heartwrenching. I'm so glad you saved it. It looked a bit unsure when it oaused and looked back, as if it couldn't believe you weren't going to eat it, lol, and then skipped off happily into what I hope was a good life. Another job well done! ❤️❤️👍

  2. Wow! Poor little thing was so frightened. Probably thought it was about to be killed and eaten. And there are few noises as awful as a deer screaming in terror. :-/

    I'm so glad you were able to release this one really quickly. I could be wrong, but I'm kinda thinking that a deer that was this worked up even before being caught, might not survive in-centre treatment. Or is capture myopathy more random than thst?

  3. Wow, I've never heard of a Muntjac deer – I don't think we have them in Canada. So tiny! We have loads of white tailed deer but not anything so small.

  4. I couldn't help but laugh at the start when he shot of down the garden like 'bye have a great time' I know I shouldn't laugh but i realy did find it funny

  5. In Denmark they get shot on the spot. They are a big threat to our roes because they ruin the woods floor and eat all the roes food. also they spread like the pest.

  6. Are you legally allowed to release it? Is is invasive, or introduced? I can imagine it doesn't do much harm to the environment considering you already have deer there.
