The little orphan deer was delivered by Cesarean section after his mother was killed by a car. He is just six inches tall weighed little more than a bag of sugar. It looked like he, too, would face a tough fight for survival. But staff at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire believe Rupert, as he has been named, will make a full recovery after his dramatic arrival. At five days old, he is being kept in an incubator and has just opened his eyes. (Sadly Rupert passed away on Wednesday.)
