Due to a lack of adequate security, forest department authorities moved 37 deer from St. John’s College grounds in Bengaluru to the National Park on August 17.</p>
<p>After being confined for ten days and undergoing a medical examination, the deer were moved to the national park. During the confinement, nine deer perished, according to the authorities. On Monday, they said, four deer also passed away.</p>
<p>Officials believe that some of the deer died from heart attacks, some from stomach worms, and others from fighting among the deer.</p>
<p>“Deer are delicate creatures. When they are translocated, it is difficult for them to adjust to a new environment. Surya Sen, executive director of Bannerghatta Biological Park, said that sometimes they even pass away from heart attacks.</p>
<p>In the quarantine zone, there were more male deer. The majority of the male deer had perished from fighting among themselves since it is deer mating season. Those who had stomach worms may have perished. The surviving deer are being fed healthy food and de-worming powder, Sen continued.</p>
<p>The deer were relocated to Bannerghatta Park, according to Deputy Conservator of Forests (DCF) Prabhakar, since there wasn’t enough room for them on the St. John’s College grounds.</p>
<p>This occurs not long after the national park’s loss of seven leopard kittens between August 22 and September 5 due to the spread of the extremely infectious viral illness feline panleukopenia. Sen said that the virus-infected lion baby and four leopard cubs had made a full recovery. No additional cases of illness were discovered after booster vaccinations were given to all cubs, he continued.</p>
