Animal rescue - Chatteris - Fenland

A crew from Chatteris helped rescue a Montjac Deer after it had got stuck in railings at Wenny recreation ground in Wenny road.

Crew Commander Roger Nunn said the deer had been frightened by a dog in the field and in trying to escape had got itself trapped in the railings.

The crew covered the deer’s head with a blanket to help calm it down whilst they used specialist equipment called spreaders to prise the railings open to release the animal.

CC Nunn said: “The deer didn’t appear to have any serious injuries as it ran away very quickly.”
