Man arrested over ‘barbaric shooting’ of deer with crossbow

A man has been arrested after a wild deer in Devon was shot in the head with a crossbow, police said.

Officers were called to the Plymbridge Woods in Plymouth to reports that a member of the public had seen a man in hunting gear allegedly acting suspiciously, and moments later saw a deer running away with what looked like a crossbow bolt in its head.

A 25-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of possessing an offensive weapon in a public place, and is now assisting both the police and the RSPCA with their inquiries.
