People in Africa hunt fallow deer and North African red deer depending on the area of Africa that they live in. The populations of red deer in North Africa are starting to decline in staggering numbers, reports the International Union for Conservation of Nature (ICUN).
In Africa, hunting is a way of life and allows people to gather the necessary food that they need in order to survive. Even when there are bans against hunting deer or other animals in the bush due to health concerns, hunters will continue to hunt, according to the Washington Post. There are many areas throughout Africa where people are unable to get quality protein sources from farmers or herders, so they are forced to capture wild animals such as deer for protein.
