    Re: Deer to islands in Northern Scotland (Orkneys and Hebrides)
    Excellent interview recorded with Dr. Jacqui Mulville, one of the authors. She sounded pretty convincing. It sounds like the genetic evidence is fairly strong that the deer were likely to have come from continental Europe, Central Europe IIRC.

    Her remark about picking up young deer like hamburgers was striking. If you have a somewhat perverted sense of humour like I do, it was quite funny.
