The pudu are typically shy and like to hide in vegetation. When they sense danger, they bark and even run in a zig-zag pattern to evade predators like cats, owls, foxes, and pumas, according to the zoo. Pudu are native to Argentina and Chile, and because of habitat loss and other factors, they've been designated as "vulnerable" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Luckily, it seems like the fawn will do just fine as a New Yorker -- unless it tries to take a rush hour subway. And in that case, it doesn't stand a chance.
