The Sweetest Little Deer

This amazing little deer was delivered by C-section at a local wildlife hospital after his mother was killed by a car and they were unable to save her. This little guy whom the hospital calls Rupert is a mere 6-inches tall and weighs just over 1-pound. He spends his days in an incubator and is fed through a tube but is lucky to be alive. At five days old staff members at the Buckinghamshire wildlife hospital predict that Rupert will make a full recovery and lead a happy healthy life.  It’s such a great thing when though we can’t save them all we can save some. Wildlife hospitals do their best to help save the lives of millions of animals that suffer injuries due to humans and natural disasters alike.
