'uncultivated plant brought back for animals' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'uncultivated plant brought back' is the wordplay.
'uncultivated' becomes 'fallow' (I've seen this before).
'plant' becomes 'reed' (reed is a kind of plant).
'brought back' says the letters should be written in reverse.
'reed' written backwards gives 'deer'.
'fallow'+'deer'='FALLOW DEER'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for fallow deer that I've seen before include "Antlered beast" , "Wildlife" , "Antlered animal whose summer coat is reddish with white spots" , "horny beast" .)
