From the bucks free press:(will The Poachers justify its new name at last)

SHARON Osbourne raised a few eyebrows in Chalfont St Peter after buying a herd of deer for rocker husband Ozzy.

The Japanese sika deer, now grazing on the couple's Welders Lane estate, were a bizarre choice of Christmas present for the former Black Sabbath frontman.

But it is hoped the £5,000 herd of two stags and ten hinds from a farm in Worcestershire will help mark the closure of a forgettable 12 months for the family.

Dr John Fletcher, Britain's only vet specialising in deer, said it would only be a matter of days before the latest introduction to the couple's £2 million home would find their feet.

The vet, who runs a deer farm in Fife, Scotland, added: "A lot of people are starting deer parks at the moment. Of course they will breed, so the Osbournes may have to start producing venison."

Driven down from their Worcestershire home late on Christmas Eve, the herd were secretly smuggled onto the 250-acre Chalfont estate and released into a purpose-built enclosure.

The purchase has sparked rumours that the couple may soon be seen scouting pet shops across the area in a search for deer feed.

A spokesman for Chalfont Home Stores pet shop, in Market Place, said: "The Osbournes have not visited us. But should they need certain food we can certainly order it."

In December 2003 Ozzy broke his collarbone, six ribs and a vertebra in a quad bike accident at their Chalfont home. Sharon then underwent treatment for cancer of the colon, and most recently, five weeks ago, the couple's mansion was targeted by thieves.
