Deer found "mutilated" after attack at Powys country park

News | Published:

A deer has been found dead after a savage dog attack at a country park on the Powys/Shropshire border.

Bambi, an 18 month old fawn at Harry Tuffin's Country Park, Churchstoke, was killed sometime between Saturday evening and Sunday morning.

Roy Delves, who owns the park with his wife Ruby, said: "She was everybody's favourite. Kids would come down there and rub noses with her, she was lovely.

"We last saw her there at about 5.30pm on Saturday then the next time we saw her was Sunday morning at 8am and she had been mutilated and was dead in her bed."

Mr Delves said he suspected dogs had been responsible although he said a person may have assisted them in getting to Bambi.

Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them on 101.
