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.
