The total number of animals on the estate is 302 (Table 1). Between 1 March and 4 December 2018, the estate has had 45 new babies born and lost 37 animals (Table 1). These deaths were caused by suspected hit and runs, animals getting stuck in palisade by houses and/ or fish ponds, natural territorial fights between males, competition removal by new lead male in herds for own young and some natural deaths like age.
There was some carcass found which we were unable to speculate the cause of death due to the extent of decomposition.
