The young white stag recently spotted in Corby has been given a new name.

The competition to re-name Chalky Jnr – the young white buck pictured with Chalky, the white stag of Brookfield Plantation – was launched by the Campaign Against Resource Recovery Park.

The protest group is opposed to the proposed development at Brookfield Plantation which will see 120 acres of trees and grassland, home to the deer and other wildlife, destroyed.

The Campaign Against Resource Recovery Park asked children living near the woodland for their ideas for a better name for Chalky Jnr.

The children had to choose an appropriate name and then explain why they had chosen it.

The winning name selected was Snowy, and a small prize was given to the child who chose it.

Chalky is a very social media-savvy stag – he has his own Twitter account - and his own Facebook page. Chalky sends out regular updates from these and communicates with people who get in touch with him.

There have been numerous recent sightings of the usually elusive Chalky – if anyone has any photos of him, or Snowy and the rest of the herd, please email CARRP.
