FALLOW DEER

The only wild population of fallow deer in France can be found in Alsace, in the Illwald forest near Sélestat (some 400 pairs). They are part of the heritage of Alsace. This fairy tale animal likes deciduous forests and coppices, and can also be found in meadows and clearings. If you want to see them in Cigoland, you will need to be patient and stay very quiet, as fallow deer are timid creatures. But the sight will be well worth it!!
