Warn­ing after milliner to the stars is gored by park stag

The Daily Telegraph - - News - By Nick Ste­wart

A MILLINER who has made hats for Holly Wil­loughby and Myleene Klass was gored by a stag as she tried to pho­to­graph it.

Yuan Li, 43 from east Lon­don, suf­fered six punc­ture wounds when she was charged at by the animal she de­scribed as hav­ing “huge antlers” in Rich­mond Park. A punc­ture wound to the thigh re­quired plas­tic surgery. Ms Li, who was pho­tograph­ing the stag along­side a mother and its fawn, said: “There need to be more signs to high­light the mat­ing sea­son and make peo­ple aware of how dan­ger­ous stags are at this time of year.” Ex­perts say peo­ple should stay at least 160ft from deer.

Yuan Li, right, a milliner who counts celebri­ties among her cus­tomers, was gored by a stag and will take up to 12 weeks to re­cover from her in­juries
