Yes, this is an important message and it is great to explain this to the public
in this way.
While the most of the deer in the movie are indeed Elk, which is a native deer
to the region, there is another native deer species shown: a young Mule Deer
But I did find a few errors though:
(1) Isn't the passerine (2:08-2:10) a Savi's Warbler? I.e a European species?
(2) The still image of the badger shows actually a European Badger, which looks
very different from the native American Badger.
(3) Not sure, which Cottontail the rabbit is. I think it's a European Rabbit,
which doesn't occur in the area.
(4) Not sure about the weasel. It is some kind of a ferret (which indeed is a
weasel species). Doesn't look quite like a Black-footed Ferret.

Yes, a good video in its main message. However, the deer are actually elk- but
then the narrator appears to have a British accent and he may be used to Red
Deer a European cousin to elk. -TATE
