Gored farmer pleads for stag

JILL GILROY, 47, a deer breeder from Devon, has pleaded for a rutting stag which gored her not to be put down.

Gilroy keeps a herd of 60 red deer on a farm near Lustleigh.

She suffered severe abdominal injuries when she was impaled on the antlers of a four-year-old red deer and then trampled.
