It Took Cloak-and-Dagger Effort to Return Creatures From Iran to Biblical Home.

When Gen. Yoffe learned of the deer's existence, he began courting Iranian officials. He invited the shah's brother, Prince Abdol Reza Pahlavi, who was an avid hunter, to Israel's Negev Desert to hunt the rare Nubian ibex, a desert-dwelling mountain goat found in few places outside Israel. Months later, he arranged a second hunting trip for another senior Iranian wildlife official, Rashid Jamsheed, who bagged an ibex with more than 53-inch antlers, the Safari Club International world record to this day.

It's funny. Those Israelis

It's funny. Those Israelis and their myth making. First it was an Iranian donkey they imported for purposes of recreating, now it's a deer. 

The future? Where Iran created a formal Islamic Republic, now these folks of east European extraction are bent on creating a formal Jewish Republic. 


Interesting tale! Prince Abdol Reza!
