Miracle of fawn which survived after mother was killed by car.
The baby roe deer is making a remarkable recovery at the Cheshire RSPCA centre after cheating death.
An RSPCA inspector was called out at 1am on Sunday, May 23, to reports of a pregnant deer being hit in Bolton.
The collision killed the mother and ruptured her abdomen, with two fawns spilling out.
Miraculously, one was still alive.
RSPCA inspector Ben Strangwood said: "I've heard stories about this type of thing, but I've certainly never seen anything like it before. "The fact that this fawn survived what happened to her mother is unbelievable." The orphaned fawn is being hand-reared by veterinary nurse Sarah Goodwin at RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre, near Nantwich, Cheshire.
The fawn orphaned before she was even born
