Positive progress for Owen, our Red Deer calf
Back in August 2013 we reported on the progress of Owen the Red Deer calf which we had rescued from fencing and which had subsequently been abandoned by his mother. From his initial bottle feeding Owen has grown over the intervening months and has gradually become more independent (at least he doesn’t follow everyone around the place anymore!). He was a huge hit with holidaymakers in his youth and still remains much less shy than others of his species, coming to those he knows when called. He’s growing in to a fine young animal as the photographs show and it will be interesting to see how he changes as the rut approaches in Autumn.
