A deer found ‘tangled and drowning’ in the sea off a section of Exmouth beach has died, it has been confirmed.
A group of like-minded strangers in the Sandy Bay area of the beach rallied around the roe deer on Friday (November 10) morning after it was found in the sea.
Members of the public helped to rescue the deer which was taken to the RSPCA’s West Hatch rehabilitation centre in Somerset.
The RSPCA has confirmed today that, despite all efforts the deer died overnight on Friday night.
A spokesman for the RSPCA said: “Sadly it did die as it was very hypothermic and exhausted.”
