Deer given a lift

The first major deer lift was carried out in June 1980, and went very smoothly. The deer were transported by Bristol freighter from Nelson to Hamilton and appeared to take the journey quite calmly, aided by an antistress drug and hoods to keep them in the dark and serene. They were carried out of the plane by strong arms or on stretchers, and appeared to quite enjoy the attention.
