Can we keep deer as pet?Today morning I reeceived a telephone call from one of my old friends. My friend has been working as a manager in a famous tea-garden of North Bengal. He has stated that today early morning the workers of the tea-garden have rescued a fawn (baby deer) which had been stalked by a leopard.
Now my firend wants to keep the baby deer in his residential complex as pet. He wants to know the following:-
(a) Is it possible to keep a deer as a pet (from behavioural point of view of the deer)?
(b) Is it legally okay to keep a fawn as pet?
(c) Is a deer dangerous for young child/children? Can it attack them with its horns?
Knowledgeable members may kindly give theeir opinion in this regard.
