Kanchula Kharg is the place where the Uttar Pradesh Forest Department
breeds musk deer in captivity. Presently the nursery has six females
and four males. All the females are pregnant and the department is
expecting the fawns by end June or early July.
The nursery has a total staff of five people to look after the deer.
Every morning and evening, the musk deer are fed with lichen, which
happens to be their favourite food.
