Why this breed
Similar to the fallow deer in their colouring, sika were introduced to Britain in 1860, and now have ranges across the five countries of the British Isles. Their success is especially marked because it is thought that the vast majority of these animals descend from one stag and three hinds introduced to Viscount Powerscourt's deer park at Enniskerry, Eire. Interbreeding with red deer is just one issue that the breed poses, as the deer population in the UK has exploded in recent years. Expect a finer grained finish with plenty of flavour.
