Deer Rescue Using Washing Liquid

RSPCA Rescues Deer Using Washing-up Liquid

An animal welfare officer has described how she used washing-up liquid to rescue a deer that was trapped in a drain in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, England.

Catherine Strawford from the RSPCA was called out to the scene on Wednesday after the deer was spotted struggling to free itself from the drain.

Ms Strawford said she initially tried to use oil to lubricate the deer’s fur, but this was unsuccessful. She then decided to try washing-up liquid.

“I rubbed the washing-up liquid all over the deer’s fur to lubricate it,” she said. “It was quicker than washing the dinner pots and so much more rewarding.”

Deer Freed Within 20 Minutes

Within 20 minutes, the deer was free and able to walk away. Ms Strawford said she was relieved to have been able to rescue the animal.

“It was a very rewarding experience,” she said. “The deer was very grateful and it was lovely to see it running free again.”
