In last week’s blog entry, we posted a photo of a somewhat odd looking deer sent in by Robert in Hudson, Wisconsin. We asked our readers to chime in and let us know what they thought was wrong with the deer. Sadly no one did. We emailed the photo to Stephen Ditchkoff, an associate professor of wildlife at Auburn University. Ditchkoff helped clear up what was going on with the deer. He said that the swelling in the deer’s belly was more than likely caused due by an abdominal injury or tumor. The day after we posted the blog, Robert sent in another photo of the deer that his scouting camera captured at a different angle. This, along with Ditchkoff‘s diagnosis, quickly put out rumors of a 5-legged, pot bellied deer.
