This animal would be extinct if not for the use of game ranches.  Coming from China, they are named for a Catholic priest named Father David (in French Pere David) who built a high fence and put a few of them inside.  Those deer became the last of the species.

The animals are brownish-gray colored and males weigh about 400 lbs.  Their horns have multiple points and their brow tynes are very long.
