Cruel World

By Paul_Barr
This was the last shot that I took of the now deceased deer at the car park at the Black Mount.

Around the turn of the year it was shot on the face multiple times with an air rifle by unknown persons and had to be humanely destroyed.

Strathclyde Police are investigating the matter.
