21 rescued after flooding
Twenty-one also known as Pere David’s deer, were rescued in Hunan province after their habitat around Dongting Lake was flooded in June, local authorities said on Friday. Continuous rainstorms have hit Hunan in the flood season, leaving most of the deer’s habitat in the city of Yuanjiang flooded by swollen Dongting Lake. The local forestry department has received frequent reports of deer trapped or injured. China is now home to over 5,000
accounting for 80 percent of the world’s total.
