STAFF at a wildlife centre were left shocked when they discovered the decapitated head of a deer.
The female roe deer was found when staff from RSPCA centre East Winch Wildlife Centre were on a routine tracking check. They were led by their equipment to the deer's severed head which was buried in the ground.
There was no sign of the body. It is thought the deer may have been shot.
The deer was first sent to the centre in July after it had suffered a fractured leg and was nursed back to health by centre staff.
