You take your chances
Its a nice cool morning today here “france” and ive just got back from the walkies with the boys,
Just now they’re eating breakfast “all safe & happy”
But 30 mins ago was a different story
As we walked along the tracks and down to the water edge of the steam the boys went about sniffing and chewing grass/ running in & out of the water
Just a normal morning walk “but then” my eye caught sight of a baby deer its head stuck in the barbed wire fencing,
The dogs had’nt seen the deer and as i tied each one of them to the gate i walked over to this half dead animal and thought what the hell do i do!!
These animals can turn nasty!
But its eye blinked it’s tonge half out of its mouth and blood we’re the wire had cut into its kneck,
from the soil around this part of the fence i could see the deer had tried for a long time to get out of this mess,
As i stroked its head and talked to it and checked to see if any more serious damage was done, i couldnt help but notice how tough its coat was, All seemed fine "just the head in this tangled wire,
I started to bend the wire and get it away from the deers cut kneck and by bending and bending the wire snapped, now i could get enough sized hole to release the deers head, (if only it would keep still)
It half got to its feet coughed and fell over, then again it stood up and looked at me, it really was a strange feeling as now i was on my knees and the deer stood up and we found we we’re looking at each other,
it was then “Henry” one of my dogs started to bark and the deer ran off, we’re he got the strength from i dont know but he just ran and ran into the woods.
I washed the blood off my hands in the stream and we all walked home ,
Passing the fields and seeing the cow’s we see most days.
Nature and the wild animals are something im so pleased i live close enough to see in a distance,
But as the boys are all fed regulary and safe its a nice feeling to see daily and knowing they’ve someone who cares for them.
Nature and gardenng go hand in hand.
