Deer put down after getting caught in barbed wire fence

A deer which got tangled in a barbed wire fence in Maidenhead had to be put down last night.

Red Watch, from Maidenhead fire station, were called to Furze Platt Road at 9.50pm to help release the animal.

But RSPCA officers, who also attended the scene, were forced to put the badly cut muntjat deer down.

A spokeswoman for the RSPCA said: "Unfortunately the deer had to be put to sleep at the scene because it would not have been able to survive the injuries it had sustained."

She said muntjac deers are common in the south of England and originate from China.
