The report on June 6th of Axis Deer in North Kona turned out to be Mouflon Sheep. But you can see they are very similar. The Big Island Invasive Species Committee quickly reacted to the report and sent this to help us all.
As you can see in the photo below, it is nearly impossible to distinguish Axis Deer (the serious threat) from the Mouflon Sheep (not serious). The Axis Deer has the spots. Axis Deer are the real threat to coffee farmers.
