Now widespread in Britain this small deer is considered by some to be a nuisance.

It was introduced into Woburn Park from its native China. By the 1950s escapees had started to establish a breeding population which has rapidly increased.

Its success here is mirrored by a dramatic decline in its original home. The UK now QI is now considered a refuge of world wide importance for this deer.
