Père David’s Deer | Elaphurus davidianus

The Père David’s deer, also known as David­s­hirsch or Milu, used to live in nort­hern China and sou­thern Mon­go­lia. In the wild, they are now com­p­le­tely extinct. In 1865 there was a last herd with 120 ani­mals in the Impe­rial game park near Bei­jing. There, they were dis­co­ve­red by French mis­sionary David and named after him. Some ani­mals were brought to Paris and Lon­don, where they suc­cess­fully repro­du­ced. Thirty years later, the Impe­rial game park near Bei­jing was com­p­le­tely floo­ded by storms, wiping out the ent­ire herd.
