A little Muntjac deer was struck by a car and got stuck for two hours inside the front grille.
A driver hit the deer as she drove through Potters Bar in Herfordshire England.
It wasn’t until two miles later when she pulled into a service station to check what had happened that she found the animal stuck in the front of her Peugeot.
When she got out of the car she got quite a shock to see the deer in the car grille. She said she was amazed it had survived.’
RSPCA animal collections officer Grace Mead added:
We couldn’t quite believe it. We get a lot of these calls at this time of year, and when the deer is as caught as this there are normally broken bones and serious – often fatal – injuries. But this resilient chap just hopped out and was away back into the nearby woodland at the speed of light. It was wonderful to see.
The RSPCA says it’s a good idea for drivers to slow down in spring and autumn particularly around dawn and dusk when deers are most active.
There are about 74,000 deer-vehicle collisions every year in the UK.
