Muntjac deer freed from Moor Mill Beefeater waterwheel

A muntjac deer had to be rescued after it got stuck in the wheel of a watermill inside a restaurant. The small doe got trapped between two paddles on the traditional feature at the Moor Mill Beefeater in Bricket Wood, St Albans.

It was freed by the RSPCA which said the frightened animal most likely fell into the river outside. Kate Wright, who rescued the deer, said: "It was quite a sight for the diners having their lunch." BBC News, Beds, Herts & Bucks 4.8.17
