Olympic gold medallist Greg Rutherford has revealed how he carried an injured deer for two miles to his home after finding it while out walking his dogs.
Not wanting to leave it in pain, he carried it two miles and arrived home exhausted and covered in blood to the astonishment of his partner Susie.Sadly, despite the best care at Tiggywinkles Animal Hospital, it died.
But it was luckier than the poor bloody beast that Durham Police's finest turned up to 'help':
Andrew Pittilla and Brian Clewlow, from Durham Constabulary, were alerted to the animal after it was hit by a car. On arriving at the scene they decided to carry it to the side of the road in the hope it would recover.
But two days later they returned ...Yes, this is indeed that case, and we all know how they then dealt with the unfortunate animal.
The officers told a disciplinary panel their actions had been in the best interests of the animal and they gained no satisfaction from it.
They were removed from firearms duties and given final writing warnings but the panel stopped short of sacking them.So, if you are ever arrested by these two charmers, you know what to do...
