Deer handling and transport.

In a relatively short time, farmed deer have become less flighty. This may be the result of selection for temperament, a better understanding of deer behaviour, of training deer to handling procedures and of better facility design. Improvements in human-animal interactions when working with deer have resulted in better safety for handlers and enhancement of deer welfare. Regular exposure to calm handlers and training deer to move through facilities for food rewards is helpful, and handling systems work best when they take advantage of natural deer behaviour to return to where they came from. All people working with deer should be adequately trained (including in relation to human and animal safety) and, in some countries, this is required by legislation, welfare codes and industry guidance. This chapter covers best handling and transport practices for red deer, fallow deer, wapiti (elk), bison and other species, where relevant, but does not directly address the production of trophy deer.
