Bambi is still in our garden and we have now learnt that it is a Muntjac Deer and it will get no bigger than it is now.
An RSPCA Officer turned up this afternoon in response to our calls yesterday regarding Bambi getting caught in the football net and possibly being bitten by Daisy our dog.
The RSPCA officer informed us that this Muntjac will not grow anymore, it is a little smaller than our Daisy. As long as Bambi has food and water, plus good shelter she will stay. I am so surprised. The Inspector informed us that in Towns and Cities these little creatures are everywhere, they can be seen walking along roads. There are so many everywhere the RSPCA do not take them in and if they are injured they have to put them down, I was horrified at that.
Fascinated to find out from the Officer that this Muntjac can jump 6ft fences, so that is how he got in, it will come and go as it pleases.
My Daisy is a worry as I do not want her injured, the Inspector said that the Muntjac will make sure it keeps clear of our dog, I hope so.
As of today May 14 I have not seen her, oh yes apparently it’s a she, she has no horns, well that we could see of. I just hope that Bambi does not wander too far find a “mate” and end up pregnant, not sure I could cope with how many babies she may have.
I did not expect this little creature to decided she would live here, what I wonder will be the next guest to arrive. What with all the Birds, Squirrels, Frogs, one hedgehog, my two goldfish and Daisy and now Bambi the house/garden is full.
