Axis deer have several vocalizations, which include barking when alarmed and bellowing during the mating season. Fawns have a high-pitched call used when they become separated from their mother.
Axis deer antlers sweep back into an upward curve and have three points each.
These regal deer come from the tropics of India and are also called chital deer, which means “spotted” in Hindustani.
Wildlife Rescue’s Vision is that humans come to see that we are members of a vast life community, that we experience the proper gratitude and respect for this community, and that we live in a more appropriate and compassionate manner in relation to the whole.
WRR was founded in 1977 in San Antonio, Texas. Since 2001 its primary base of operations has been located on 212 acres near Kendalia, Texas, a property which was purchased through the generosity of three of our supporters.
