This doe roe deer was found injured in a ditch between the Lairds Grave and Glenfinart Caravan Park. It appeared that the animal had been hit by a vehicle. Staff from Ardentinny Outdoor Centre contacted the vet in Dunoon. However, as the injuries were severe, the deer was put to sleep.
Drivers in the area between the Swedish houses and the caravan site should be aware of both deer and squirrels crossing the road, especially during these dark days.
