    That is a very correct statement, maybe even an understatement???
    They are very tough critters !!!

    Make sure you really check out the meat on that quarter. Hopefully a localized infection, but you sure don't want to risk it. Like playing with snake venom

    If there are any old wounds on the carcass, and especially if there is pus present, meat in this area should be removed and discarded. A large area of tissue around the wound and pus pockets should also be cut away with the wound, even if the tissue looks normal, because it can still harbor infection.

He was walking fine. He got shot last year through the leg. I’m glad I didn’t cut his leg open now.
