About the Rusa Deer
Rusa deer are native to South East Asia. Rusa deer are widespread in the Indonesian archipelago and it has been introduced into South East Kalimantan, New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago, New Caledonia, Australia and New Zealand. Populations of wild rusa deer have also been found in coastal areas between Townsville and Rockhampton, and southern Queensland. A long-established, but little-known, the population is located near Stanthorpe. Rusa deer that are contained within a deer-proof fence; for example, farmed Rusa or Rusa held by a game park are not declared. Any Rusa deer not contained within a deer-proof fence are considered feral or wild and subject to control. The natural disposition of deer means that farmed animals escaping captivity quickly revert to the wild state.
