Some of a group of 52 fallow deer, captured on Robben Island, off Cape Town, South Africa, wait to begin a long road journey to their new home on Tuesday. They are the last group of the nonindigenous animals that are being relocated to the Lions Rock sanctuary by the Four Paws conservation group. In recent years rabbits, cats, and deer have been culled to lessen the negative environmental effects to the island, a World Heritage site where former President Nelson Mandela spent much of his 27 year incarceration.
