We got barking deer!

The Journal Star has the hard-hitting story of the barking deer found at the Peoria Zoo. Give me a hell yeah! I’ll quote from Wikipedia:

Muntjac, also known as Barking Deer, are small deer of the genus Muntiacus. Muntjac are the oldest known deer, appearing 15 to 35 million years ago, with remains found in Miocene deposits in France, Germany and Poland.

Bitchin’ Camero! They even have a Web site. Here’s a picture of the bad-ass barking deer:

Hey, who let the deer out.. woof woof! And here’s a video of the deer:
