Felpham deer beheading: Helpers speak out
Two men who worked to save a deer which was eventually beheaded have spoken out today (Monday January 20).
The plumbers were on their way to work at a housing development in Felpham when they came across an injured deer lying in the road.
Concerned for its health, they took the deer onto the path, covered it in a blanket and gave it a bowl of water.
One plumber, who wished to remain anonymous, said: "We just came across it as it was in the morning and we moved it off the road.
"It's out of order. It was alive 100 per cent. It was alive in the afternoon. They took it home for dinner — they can't be doing that, it's just not right. There's kids about.
"Someone should have been out sooner."
West Sussex Wildlife Protection has also condemned the decapitating of the deer after responding to the incident.
