5 or 6 years ago the Irish government funded a survey on Munties in a part of Leinster with a cull planned on exterminating them.

Those who carried out the cull told the Govt. not to bother as  they were too well established.

I think perhaps you are thinking of Chinese Water Deer. The Muntjac is never far from thorny cover and when he is he makes every effort to get back into it.
