Stag Search

Four months after it disappeared, a red stag from Biddenden has been discovered – 27 miles away from home.
Nelson, who escaped from a parkland enclosure in June was tracked down when residents in the Canterbury area began spotting him near their homes, and posted updates on Facebook.

It’s thought the 600lb stag was on the search for a mate, and although his exact whereabouts for the past few months remain unknown, the sightings that led to his return included a pub car park and fi elds where walkers spotted him.

He has now been returned to his grateful owners.
