NENAGH gardai had to come to the rescue of Bambi this Monday morning after a deer was reported caught in fencing around a development near Birdhill.
The animal was in a stresed state, but was uninjured and went back into the nearby wood to rejoin the resident herd. There are two separate deer herds along the M7, with one herd on the Newport side and the other on the Ballina side. It is not uncommon for motorists to spot deer crossing the motorway during the rutting season as stags go in search of a mate.
