Tiny Rupert


Here's the story of tiny Rupert.
Rupert was orphaned after his mother was killed by a car while she was still pregnant with him. A wildlife hospital found themselves unable to save the life of his mother and therefore had to deliver this tiny deer three weeks early by Caesarean section. He was then put in an incubator where he was fed by a tube and eventually fully recovered from the traumatic events of his birth. It's considered very difficult to keep an orphaned baby deer alive (they seem to loose their will to live after their mother is gone), but luckily Rupert was strong and as a spokesman for the wildlife hospital said; "He's an extremely feisty little guy and quite pushy".
