Little Rupert

I received this email from James. HOLY COW how cute is this little guy. Just thought I would share his picture and his story.

This tiny deer was delivered by Cesarean section at a wildlife hospital
after his mother was killed by a car.
Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult's hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother.

At just six inches tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire.

He has only recently opened his eyes. I did find the article on Rupert, and his story is true. He was placed with a foster mom, but he didn't make it through the night.
