There was a real 'safari feel' to the discovery made by intrepid mum Karen Low-Cal in Stoke this morning, when, during her daily clean-up of her son's bedroom, she discovered what appeared to be an impala.

Karen, the mum of pesky 15-year-old Child C, who is well-known locally for his mischievous exploits, had stooped to retrieve a piece of Lego when she spotted what appeared to be 'antlers', and, after much tugging this way and that, she finally managed to dislodge the 60kg beast, and to drag it out onto the carpet, where it cowered looking more than a little frightened.

Karen takes up the story:

"I felt this sharp thing, and saw that it was some kind of goring device. I struggled a bit, but was eventually able to remove it from under the bed, and, to my shock and amazement, saw that it was an impala! At least, I think it was an impala, although it may have been a Thomson's Gazelle - the two are very similar."

The find was even more of a surprise for Karen, because impalas are seldom spotted in this part of Staffordshire.

Asked whether she had contacted the RSPCA or the local zoo about her amazing find, Karen laughed:

"Neither. I made some chops, and we had them for tea."
