Deer come to us orphaned, after being hit by a car, needing rescue after falling in wells or because they are injured.
Orphaned deers are highly sensitive to humans, sounds and even the slightest changes in their environment. They need to be handled with care and tenderness while keeping a close eye on their behaviour to understand if they are adapting well to their environment. Orphaned animals require a high level of care and attention due to their sensitive nature and the fact that they are separated from their mothers. Young deer require constant feeding, soundproof and temperature regulated rooms along with enough physical activity and time in the sun - our rehabilitators work round the clock to make sure all their daily requirements are met while keeping a constant eye on their recovery and overall health. Orphaned deer stay with us for extended periods of time till they are older, fitter and display natural behaviour traits to survive by themselves. Once they have met all their rehabilitation milestones they are released into the wild.
The injured deer that come to us are either victims of road accidents, fallen in wells or have strayed into human habitation and injured themselves. Depending upon the seriousness of their injuries their treatment plans are tailored and enclosures designed. Usually, they come in with superficial wounds or severe dehydration and are released back into the wild within a few days. The ones with grave injuries like a broken bone require longer treatment periods, with an intense rehabilitation course that requires, isolated enclosures to make sure the deer is comfortable in its environment and its movement is restricted to fasten the recovery, proper nutrition, physio and laser therapy once the wound is healed. After which they are moved into a bigger enclosure where they can stretch their limbs and regain their strength before they are fit for a release back in the wild.
We get called out all over Pune District for rescues of deer who have fallen down well or are stuck in fences or strayed into human areas with no way out. In such scenarios, we deploy the D.A.R.T, a team proficient in dealing with such scenarios. Our experienced rescuers safely and skillfully build systems with specialised equipment to rescue the deer out of the wells, direct them towards safety when they are strayed all this while ensuring the safety of the animal and the people involved. The deer is examined for injuries post-rescue and then either released or brought back to the RESQ Wildlife Unit for further treatment.
