Four, perfectly spaced, axis bucks walking off.
Three of our curious, and also perfectly spaced, breeding does. What is it with these axis?
Two axis does fighting. They pawed, and wrestled for what seemed like forever.

The doe on the right had been pawing the other, and now she's just clutching while the other balances against her.

Axis does are also notorious for biting.
