Scientists Have No Clue Why Female Monkeys are Having Sex with Deer in Japan

Scientists have come across something peculiar going on between two different animal species on an island in Japan.

Young female Japanese macaques have reportedly been performing inter-species sex with sika deer according to a paper published by scientists at the University of Lethbridge in Canada on December 11. Researchers have observed that the wild monkeys were mounting the deer in Minoo, central Japan. Such monkey-deer interactions have also been reported on Yakushima Island back in January 2017.
