A bit of a distressing watch this bit of video. It is a mature Roe buck caught on camera last week with what appears to be a serious leg issue, maybe broken or dislocated. Apart from this problem it appears to be in good condition and still able to move around.
I have not seen or heard of a dead buck been found in the vicinity so I’m hoping it managed to survive. The video was taken 10 days ago at the entrance to the reserve.
While watching our resident Doe and current youngster this morning our triplets from two years ago turned up. So I had the mother and her four young bucks with her, such a nice sight to see. Glad to see they are all looking so fit and healthy.
