From the text: After the Deer Removal Act of 1851 the red deer were ordered to be destroyed, and Captain Buckworth Powell of Foxlease, with Mr. Hay Morant of Brockenhurst Park, were some of the first to start a few couples to hunt them. Then Mr. Grantley Berkeley, with two or three bloodhounds, killed a few, and they all gradually disappeared.
