SEPRONA, the Guardia Civil’s Nature Protection unit, rescued a roe deer that appeared on Altea’s Cap Blanc beach.
Several concerned members of the public contacted Seprona on seeing the deer, which was swimming amongst rocks near the shore when the Guardia Civil officers reached Cap Blanc.
Startled by the large crowd that had begun to gather, the animal emerged from the water and galloped off before anything could be done to help it.
The officers eventually found the deer on the N-332 main road and were able to capture it before it could cause a traffic accident or injure itself.
In line with standard procedures, Seprona contacted Environmental officials from the Wildlife Recovery Centre in Santa Faz, who checked the animal, whose origins are unknown, and found that it was in good health.
“The deer was later released in suitable surroundings in Sierra Bernia,” Seprona sources said.
