Exmoor ponies graze close to where it has been reported that the 'Emperor of Exmoor' was last seen after being shot dead by an unnamed but licensed hunter, on October 29, 2010 in Rackenford, England. Although it has been claimed that the red deer, thought to be one of Britain's largest wild animals - at 300lb and almost 9ft tall - was shot by trophy hunters for his antlers valued up to 10,000 GBP, no body has been seen, prompting rumours that he may not be dead after all.
