THE ONE-POUND DEER

This tiny deer was delivered by Caesarean section at a wildlife hospital after a car killed his mother... Little Rupert, who was so small he could fit in an adult's hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother.

At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he was in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire.

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."
