Fallow Deer: One of the County Ranger and deer wardens for Staffordshire has notified us that on Friday 16th June at 9pm the Rangers were alerted by Staffordshire police of a vehicle collision involving a fallow deer doe, which was hit and killed on the A51 at Hopwas Woods. This is the first time that they have recorded Fallow deer in this part of Staffordshire. They know that Hopwas is home to Muntjac and the occasional passing Red deer, but never have they recorded Fallow.
