Lost and lonely, a young red deer has bucked tradition and found himself a new family in Suffolk -- a flock of sheep! National Trust shepherd Andrew Capell discovered the deer while counting his flock at Dunwich Heath in Suffolk recently.
The little deer appears to have become separated from his herd before attaching himself to the first group of animals he came across. He has been living, eating and sleeping with his 100 new friends for about two weeks now and shows no sign of leaving. The sheep do not seem to mind their new guest and have adopted him into the flock.It is hoped the young deer will rejoin his herd if they roam past the flock over the coming weeks.
