Compared to the more exotic animals (e.g. lions, tigers, rhinos etc.) a bunch of deer wouldn’t seem to be anything special. After all we have large numbers of them wandering all over our property.

However, there’s a fascinating story behind these particular deer (See: Saved by Chance: The Incredibly Strange Story of the Pere David’s Deer)

Apparently the deer went extinct in its native land (China), but survived because a few specimens has been sent to the Duke of Bedford‘s deer park at Woburn Abbey in the UK.
