    Emma said the evacuation of the small herd of captive deer follows on the heels of the evacuation of human populations within a 12-kilometer radius of the peak of Mount Agung. The deer were domesticated and kept in a fenced corral by local residents

    The ten “doe” Timor Deer (“Cervus Timorensis”) were not receiving sufficient feed since the departure of the local residents of Pidpid Village.

    The careful relocations of the deer over the more than 60 kilometers from Mount Agung to the Bali Zoo at Singapadu took three days to complete.
