Deer on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
in the Virgin Islands are quite elusive, you just might
catch a glimpse of one on St. Croix!
in the late 1700's, white-tailed deer were introduced
to the territory as a potential game animal by Danish
colonists. The relatively small deer appear to have
been brought to St. Croix from the southern part of
the United States. Unlike deer on the U.S. mainland,
the deer on St Croix breed and have babies year round,
and their only predators on the island are potentially
wild dogs and cars!
