In conversation with Daily City News, the zoo administration disclosed that a pair of Blackbuck deer was brought to the zoo nearly four years ago. “Currently, there are twelve of them, comprising eight females and four males. They are provided with a diet of grass, husk, and straw,” they said.
The Blackbuck deer are known for their striking appearance with white markings around their eyes, mouth, part of their abdomen, and middle parts of their legs. They prefer open grassy fields and jungles where they can roam freely.
The management reported that due to their dedicated care, the animal population is growing, and more animals are expecting offspring.
Female deer can give birth every six months.
The zoo authorities have appealed to higher authorities to consider expanding the size of enclosures to accommodate the increasing deer population.
