YUEYANG, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- The East Dongting Lake Milu Deer and Bird Rescue Center has been rescuing, feeding, and rehabilitating milu deer since its founding in September 2016 in Yueyang, central China's Hunan Province. There are currently 14 milu deer under care at the center.

Milu, also known as Pere David's deer, is endemic to China where it bears the nickname "sibuxiang," or "like none of the four" for its unique features -- a horse's face, a donkey's tail, cow-like hooves and a stag's antlers.
