A REAL-LIFE Bambi is being hand-fed by the Scottish SPCA.

Tiny fawn Martini was taken in by the animal charity after its mum was killed in a road accident near Aberdeen.

Martini is one of five baby deer they are looking after at their Fishcross resuce centre.

Centre manager Colin Seddon said: "Like all fawns orphaned at such a young age, Martini and the others need a lot of one to one attention as they are still being bottle fed.

"Once they are able to self-feed, we'll take a more hands-off approach until they're ready to be returned to their natural habitat."

The charity warned that mother deers often leave fawns alone to go off foraging. They advised people to call their helpline - 03000 999 999 - if they are worried one has been abandoned.
