There are reported cases of apparently extinct animals reappearing quite often! And in many cases in substantial numbers! Either they are not technically extinct and a small number must survive, or there are greater forces at work

That's pretty cool! Hopefully they can be protected and not driven into extinction.

I don't think that's a picture of the deer as I can't see them either. I think it's just where (or general area) of where they were found.
