BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Veterans’ Home has accepted the donation of 24 fallow deer.

The animals were taken from a horse trailer to Bennington to a park near the home.

The Bennington Banner reports (https://bit.ly/Jea059) four white-tailed deer that have been inhabiting the deer park for decades were old, and were the center of much criticism from the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, since the laws on the captivity of wild animals has grown much stricter.

The park is now getting two male deer, 18 doe and four fawns.
