The biggest red stags on the planet

How did New Zealand produce the largest red deer the world has ever seen? In the first in our series Planet Deer, Scottish deer expert Niall Rowantree goes to the other side of the world to find out and tell the story of New Zealand’s remarkable animals, how they are managed, hunted and farmed. He meets the Fraser family and the family of the man credited with creating the Kiwi deer industry, Sir Tim Wallis.
