TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — After a wildfire struck Taichung City on Sunday, local residents on Monday (Nov. 11) discovered the carcass of a deer, suspecting it had fallen victim to the blaze.

At 2:20 p.m. on Sunday, the Taichung City Fire Bureau received a report about a brush fire near an electric tower in the city's Longjing District. The fire was visible to motorists driving past the 185-kilometer mark on National Freeway No. 3.

The fire department dispatched over 100 firefighters to the scene. Due to strong winds, the blaze continued to spread and burn throughout the day, and it was not until 2:51 a.m. on Monday morning that firefighters were able to fully extinguish the fire, reported UDN.

Later that day, a netizen posted photos of a deer carcass they had discovered at the scene of the fire in a ditch on Nanliao Footpath. In the photos, the deer's legs are bloody, and the report said this was possibly caused by severe burns or taking a precipitous fall.    [FULL  STORY]
