Abstract

We recently published a paper(1) documenting the success of head-only electrical stunning in red deer (Cervus elaphus). This work has now been extended to fallow deer (Dama dama) to determine whether there are differences between this species and red deer in terms of behavioural responses and effectiveness of electrical stunning. © 1994 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
