Firefly with us 2010 – 2018


Firefly was a sooty fawn lionhead buck. He came to us after being hunted down by a great hoard of people after he was spotted straying near the train station in 2010. He made quite a few people late for work, and turned up outside the sanctuary on someone’s lap in the back of a car. We estimate that he was about two years old at that time. His owner never came forward. He was fairly friendly and lived with Clary and Tarragon in one of our enclosures. He was very prone to stasis when he moulted and had eye problems caused by his tear ducts being blocked. He required regular grooming and frequent eye treatments. He left us after eight happy years in April 2018, having become increasingly frail.
