Abstract

"The red deer intended for sport with her Majesty's staghounds during the ensuing hunting season were captured yesterday in Windsor Great Park. By noon a score of splendidly antlered stags had been run into the paddock. The gates were closed and stout nets placed across the meadow, round which the deer were driven several times until they had entangled themselves in the meshes and rolled over and over in their efforts to escape from the toils. They were secured by the park laborers, and, having been denuded of their horns, were pushed into wooden boxes and conveyed in farm-carts to Swinley Paddocks. Forest hunting will now be commenced by the Queen's buck-hounds, which during this month are expected to meet Tuesdays and Fridays at the Royal Hotel, Ascot. The pack is under the control of the Marquis of Waterford."—London Standard, Oct. 6, 1885.—Chicago Tribune.
