Fallow stag and 2 does.
This is the European Sub-species Dama dama dama.

The fossil record shows that the Fallow Deer was native to the UK before the last Ice Age, but then disapeared until about the end of the 11th Century.
The Saxon records make no mention of them and some authorities believe they were re-introduced by the Normans.
