SHEPHERDSVILLE - The last captive deer at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest has been moved to a private wildlife sanctuary, officially ending the forest’s captive mammal program.
Briana, an 18-year-old whitetail deer, was moved to Broadbent Wildlife Sanctuary near Irvington Feb. 18, according to Bernheim Executive Director Dr. Mark K. Wourms.
How the move will affect a lawsuit against Wourms involving the deer’s treatment while at Bernheim remains unclear.
