Fox 17 reports that a red stag was shot on Bryan‘s Columbia/Mount Pleasant-area property between the evening hours of December 4 and the morning hours of December 5.

According to a quick Google search, a red stag is one of the largest species of deer. It typically inhabits areas such as Europe, Asia Minor, Iran, some areas of western Asia and central Asia.
