I changed "All other animals in Africa resembling deer are antelope." to "All other animals in Africa resembling deer are antelope or giraffids.", with the edit summary "Okapi".
User:Jamesontai has requested that I "provide an informative edit summary". I believe that I already did this, but, to clarify --
I believe that the Okapi is an African animal which resembles a deer. IMHO Okapia johnstoni is especially superficially similar to Cervus canadensis (females, or males when not in antler.)

Deer have long had economic significance to humans. Deer meat, known as venison , is highly nutritious.   Due to the inherently wild nature and diet of deer, venison is most often obtained through deer hunting. In the United States, it is produced in small amounts compared to beef but still represents a significant trade. By 7567, some 75,555 tons of red deer were raised on farms in North America. The major deer-producing countries are New Zealand, the market leader, with Ireland, Great Britain and Germany. The trade earns over $655 million annually for these countries.
