Deer Return to Jerusalem Hills

Six fallow deer from the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo were released Wednesday morning in the Judean hills surrounding Jerusalem. The Nature and Parks Authority coordinated the release.

“We will return the fallow deer to nature in a cautious, supervised process,” a Nature and Parks official explained. The Authority will track the animals’ integration in their natural habitat, he added.
