June 26, 2009: Venison Veal

Quote:
This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after his mother was killed by a car.


"Rupert" is 5 days old in these pics.

Quote:
At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire. He has only recently opened his eyes.
Les Stocker, founder of Tiggywinkles, said: Rupert's mother had very severe injuries. We brought him out and got him breathing and then he went into an incubator on oxygen. He is now being fed by a tube.
Question #1 - Why take a roadkill deer to Tiggywinkles?
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.

Let's eat.

Antimatter  Friday Jun 26 04:38 AM

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...



sweasel  Friday Jun 26 06:22 AM

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.



SPUCK  Friday Jun 26 06:49 AM

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




capnhowdy  Friday Jun 26 07:52 AM

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



Griff  Friday Jun 26 07:53 AM

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.



ZenGum  Friday Jun 26 08:41 AM

Awww, that is sooooo cute.


I suggest sashimi. Get the most of the tenderness.

Tiggywinkles .... haggis.



limey  Friday Jun 26 09:29 AM

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



birdclaw  Friday Jun 26 10:25 AM

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.



Queen of the Ryche  Friday Jun 26 10:41 AM

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.



classicman  Friday Jun 26 10:45 AM

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



Saphyre  Friday Jun 26 11:00 AM

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



classicman  Friday Jun 26 11:02 AM

A burgundy might overwhelm that delicate young meat...



Queen of the Ryche  Friday Jun 26 11:07 AM

That's what Sheldon said



spudcon  Friday Jun 26 11:10 AM

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



Queen of the Ryche  Friday Jun 26 11:13 AM

On 9/11?



Silazius  Friday Jun 26 11:33 AM

Bling, bling with the pinkie ring.

The elegance of the hedgehog...




monster  Friday Jun 26 12:24 PM

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.

I suggest deer dogs served with cold beer. Maybe a little hedgehog salad on the side.



Shawnee123  Friday Jun 26 12:44 PM

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

I see smashy deer all the time on the intrastatez. It's sad.

xoxoxoBruce  Friday Jun 26 12:49 PM

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



monster  Friday Jun 26 01:12 PM

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?

That's a lot of deerburger.

I believe that there is a leaf muntjac. And it's probably fully grown. Good eye there sweasel!!


Jaydaan  Friday Jun 26 07:05 PM

I am pretty sure this was last year, and the baby died.....

I was shocked to hear Texas was not in the top three. We're still in the top ten, but man. You guys must have a lot of dead deer if we're as low on the list as we are...


Shawnee123  Friday Jun 26 07:47 PM

We're lousy with deer. Lousy.

It's sad, but there are just so darn many of them.



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".

The only one I've ever hit was hit by the car in front of me first. Jim hit one and killed it, and another just rammed into the side of his car after he stopped for it.

edit: Oh! When i was a kid, my dad brought home a fawn who's mother had been hit and we raised it for while. Didn't end well...



monster  Friday Jun 26 09:23 PM

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.



spudcon  Friday Jun 26 09:33 PM

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

Yes, it was Oct of last year, and one of the comments at the link says D-Listed claimed it died, but I couldn't verify that.

Ugg. We are number 5. I believe it. My son hit one in his truck a few years ago on the way to high school and it caused $2000 of damage.


Shawnee123  Saturday Jun 27 08:53 AM

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.

Pete smashed one with the Scoobydoo 2 weeks ago.


SPUCK  Sunday Jun 28 06:00 AM

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.

Being a country boy he stopped to harvest a leg. He said he was shocked to find that all of it was like baggies filled with water. Not even a leg was usable.. Yuck.



Shawnee123  Sunday Jun 28 11:00 AM



Where the deer, and the antelope playyyyyyyyy...aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.

My wife is Chinese, and we find that humor often doesn't cross cultures intact. However, I bought this movie to watch with her, and the scene where Michael Caine is tormenting Steve Martin in the wheelchair had her helpless with laughter. My favorite is when at the dinner table Ruprecht asks permission to go to the bathroom - and then does.


jinx  Sunday Jun 28 08:57 PM

I like the genital cuff threat.

Ooooooooo klahoma! Oklahoma! Oklahoma!

I think I'll go Netflix it now!

Sundae  Tuesday Jun 30 06:55 AM

That's my local paper
And St Tiggywinkle's is in Haddenham - a village I spent a lot of time in in my teens as two of my boyfriends lived there. We abbreviated it to 'Nam, which I still find quite funny, although it's a very exclusive private joke now - I tell it to myself and smile.

Just in case anyone didn't pick up on the reference - Mrs Tiggywinkle was the hedgehog in Beatrix Potter and as Limey said it started primarily as a place to bring injured hedgehogs, but branched out into a full wildlife hospital. A friend of mine took a woodpigeon that flew into her window. Sadly, she boxed it inadequately, and it was only stunned. Halfway down the lower road, the pigeon burst forth from the box and clattered around the car, banging into the windows and shitting everywhere. Sorry - this makes me laugh even now.

Which surely took the cap off of that evening, darnit. Next time, a lot less over dinner, and maybe a nice fruity lively Central Coast California white.

Mirassou
