This deer was 10yds from the
living room window yesterday. Cwd or just tired?
Fuzzy face .Starting to show signs of stress .
County ? If you're in a CWD county I would call or knock it down if you have DCPs and get it tested. I don't think any areas with known CWD in the LP have had a lot of snow this winter to have a deer looking unhealthy.
Most likely has nothing to do with Tb or CWD.
L & O
Looks like starving to me.
Is it just an illusion or does it's right hind leg look a little jacked?
Good eye now that you mention it .
It almost looks broken up high and twisted.
Might be infected .
Yea could be. Also probably hard to piss on his gland when its facing straight back. Still not 100% sure if it's just an illusion or not.
I'm only guessing button buck.
If forced to guess.....
Fat reserves are gone. Muscle tissue has been reduced through auto cannibalism (note entire pelvic girdle and spine showing evenly vs just one side if injured ).
Gelatinous bone marrow transformation going on , meaning recovery is unlikely.
Puffer belly calves referred to in the old song "early in the mornin down by the station see the little puffer bellies waitin for the train" were starving orphans that had their fates sealed.
The deer pictured might well be in the same "boat".
I'm guessing starving because of injury
To young to be cwd
Look to the left of it’s tail base, on its upper left hip. . Appears tp be a hole.
I thought that was a weed.
