Pere David's Deer (Elaphurus davidianus)is a critically endangered species. The species has been extinct in the wild for nearly 800 years and can only be found in zoos, animal parks, and managed hunting ranches. The Pere David's Deer was unknown to western science until the 1860's when Pere David, a French missionary and zoologist noticed them in a Chinese Imperial Park. The Chinese Emperor agreed to send 18 animals to facilities in Europe in the 1800's. During the Boxer Rebellion at the turn of the century, the Chinese herd was exterminated, leaving the descendants of the animals in Europe as the only remaining members of the species.
