‘Pretty’, a young doe that was shot in the neck by a training arrow this summer, has been sighted without either the arrow or an infection from being shot.
In late-breaking news Gabriola Rescue of Wildlife Society member Liz Ciocea said Saturday that the young doe has a scar where the arrow once was but otherwise “appears bright eyed, yet serene”.
The deer was seen with her herd in their regular territory in the Pat Burns area, Ciocea said.
Ciocea also issued “a special GRRROWLY thanks” to Pat Burns neighbours “who called GROWLS Aug. 26 with the devastating news about Pretty, (and) to all who never gave up hope and watched for her every day”.
