Wild deer mainly occupy conservation reserves, forests and also private properties. Their preferred food is grass but they also eat the leaves of shrubs, trees, herbs and bark. Deer can also act as carriers of disease that affect livestock. They cause problems to the environment by contributing to erosion and degrading the water quality in creek and rivers.
They travel vast distances from their grazing areas to where they bed down at night. On their travels they destroy the vegetation through mobbing and grazing on trees and saplings. They are a creature of habit.
