What should I do if I hit a deer with my car?
Never try to pick up an injured deer without expert help. The main aim is to try to keep the animal calm until help arrives. Cover its head with a blanket or coat, keeping well away from antlers and hooves, both of which can inflict a serious injury. Go to the Road Traffic Accident page.
I think that a deer has got stuck in my garden!
It's probably very unlikely - if it got in it can almost certainly get out again. A deer can easily jump a 3 metre fence and will usually find its way out when it gets bored.
However, there are occasions where we are called to builders yards etc. where a deer has strayed in and is genuinely trapped. If this is the case please contact us, or another rescue centre experienced at handling deer and ask for advice. Deer are very highly strung animals, do not try and herd it out without first seeking advice as it may spook and injure itself or you.
