A white stag, thought to be the only one in Britain, has been shot and beheaded by poachers. The decapitated 300lb carcass of the animal was found strung up from a tree. It is thought that its head and antlers will be mounted and sold for thousands of pounds. The existence of the white stag, actually a variant of the male red deer, which lived on the Devon and Cornwall border had been kept secret for years.
