"Great article, I own several of these guys. While it is true that they can make great pets, they are not for everyone. If you are interested in getting a pet deer, find a reliable breeder who will speak to you in length about their behavior and needs. The breeder should also interview you to see if a deer is the right pet for you. Deer suffer from several stress related aliments that can leave them paralyzed or dead if not cared for properly. A good diet is very important as it should contain vitamin E to help prevent these problems. Ask the breeder about stress myopathy, confinement myopathy, and white muscle disease. Male deer also grow a large fighting tusk which they use to bite each other fiercely during the breeding season, they will also use these canines in the defense of their females. If raised together Muntjac will get along with most other animals, although an un-neutered male can have problems. My adult male has given my Great Dane a couple of really bad bites. The Great Dane is a big puppy who wants to play with everything. Male deer are territorial and can became aggresive to other animals at times. Nueturing a potentioal pet will alleviate all problems assosiated with their aggression. If you are not able to fence them in a wooden privacy fence, you must use something like bird netting to attached to any chain link style fence. Deer bolt when frightened and can run into the fense leading to sever injuries and possibly death. "
