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
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."
