"Rupert" is 5 days old in these pics.
Answer # 1 - Because The Brit didn't have a gun to shoot it.
Question #2 - Why C-section the dead deer?
Answer #2 - Because anyone that would name a vet's office Tiggywinkles is nuts.

Aww - cute! However, since he's weighing in at just over a pound we should wait until he's put on some more meat before we have a feast. Doesn't hurt being prepared though, so I'll go look for a recipe...

Hang on there, Hoss. That there looks like a muntjac, which is like some kind of a scary saber-tooth vampire deer. They were introduced to Britain, where they're doing very well, thank you.

Rupert! This is all I think of when I hear that name..

Makes me think of pina coladas. Which is a great cocktail to enjoy after feasting on braised veniveal.

That deer would fit nicely into the body cavity of a duck, which fits in a goose, which fits in a turkey, all of which would have fit in that mama deer if they were not so wasteful.

Awww, that is sooooo cute.

Tiggywinkles was set up specifically to address the problem of hedgehogs suffering injury on the roads ...

Oh my. That is just the cutest little thing! I think at that tender age, with a nice rosemary-sage marinade, you wouldn't have to worry about bitter deer face at all.

Kinda changes the meaning of "Aaawww...he's so cute I just wanna eat him up!" With a can of fava beans and a nice chianti.

I've been saving a nice summer blush for just such an occasion.

Hmmm, I'm thinking braised in a nice burgandy reduction sauce with mushrooms, served with wild rice pilaf with pinenuts and steamed asparagus spears.

A burgundy might overwhelm that delicate young meat...

My friend's meat was overwhelmed with Burgandy, you insensitive carnivore!

In the UK deer don't roam completey wild like they do in this part of America. They're usually found only on country estates and until recently cultivation of herds was more the norm than culling. Brits don't -in the main- eat them. And they only hunt the inedible Deer are not common roadkill like they are here.

Ohio is 4th in deer/car collisions. Pennsylvania is first, Michigan and Illinois are second and third. That covers a few of us dwellars.

Seems to me I read a couple years ago, In PA it was 60k on I-80 alone.

Whenever we road trip we amuse ourselves by seeing whether we can spot more dead deer or state troopers. It's suprisingly close most of the time. There are a lot of police about when we roadtrip. Who warns them?

We're lousy with deer. Lousy.
jinx Friday Jun 26 08:05 PM
Yes, we have quite a few here too. I see at least one (alive) pretty much every day that I get in the car. I remember hearing one transplantee to the area talking to another who had more recently moved here "You're going to hit one, probably sooner than later, just relax and get used to the idea".

I drive 8 miles on the I94 to the kids' school. Through the outskirts of the city -you know, built up both sides. There's one or two fresh deer corpses pretty much every day. It's a lot more when you leave the city. And they spread a loooong way.

If only they'd ban guns, the problem would go away.

That's right, forgot to mention GA, knowing of 3(?) dwellars at least who live there. We might outnumber the deer. Let's come up with a plan, overthrow them, make them subservient.

My Dad was following a semi that hit 7 antelopes at once on that notorious highway up the center of Oregon out of Bend. He said it was like a strike in a bowling alley - they rained down everywhere.
