I received photos of this small, most precious premature baby deer, delivered by Cesarean section after his mother was fatally injured when hit by a car. Little Rupert was placed in the intensive care unit of Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire in Britain. After several days he progressed enough to be placed with a foster mom who gave him constant care. Sadly he lived only a few more days. You can see more photos and read all the details at: Rupert's Story.
Tiggywinkles (I love the name) is an interesting story.
All British wild animal casualties brought to the hospital are treated completely free of charge and are released through a controlled programme, back to the wild, when they are fully fit. No sick, injured or orphaned wild creature is ever turned away.
They are also dedicated to passing on any knowledge they learn from their experiences treating the wildlife by writing books and papers and giving lectures to veterinary schools. They are currently treating over 1150 animals (including over 500 hedgehogs!). Learn more by visiting: Tiggywinkles, World's Leading Wildlfe Hospital, you'll find lots of fascinating information and more wonderful photos.
