Ash arrived at the park in February from the Scottish Deer Centre and has been introduced to the wildlife conservation charity’s resident male, Raven, as part of the breeding programme for the species.

Historically native to Scotland, Eurasian elk are the largest living deer species and are still found across much of Europe.

Visitors can spot Ash and Raven in the park’s 85-acre drive-through reserve.
