On June 16, a battle for "love" was intensely taking place on the prairie grassland of Dafeng Milu National Nature Reserve, the coast of the Yellow Sea. The 2018 Deer King Championship was staged as scheduled.
 
Through the live broadcast of all-media, the event let the global audience witness the ultimate "Glory of the King". At 9 a.m, the deer king's live show officially began. Lu Changhu, botanist and zoologist, professor of Nanjing Forestry University, and Wang Libo, the senior livestock specialist of Dafeng Milu National Nature Reserve Management Office, explained the deer king competition. The competition scene was the first stocking area in the reserve, and it was also the earliest established stocking area. There are probably more than 600 Milu Deer here. According to the ratio of male and female, there are more than 200 adult male Milu Deer here, fighting for the Deer King in the form of wheel battles.
 
Milu Deer is also known as "nondescript". Its head is like a horse's, its horns are like deer's, its neck is like a camel's, and its tail is like a donkey's. It is the national first-class protected animal. Today, the Milu Deer's population has grown from the original 39 to 4,556, accounting for more than 60% of the world's Milu Deer. The number of wild population has increased to 905. Milu Deer has become a flag of Dafeng's ecological priority and green development, a typical example of Jiangsu's green development.
