A deer with a parasitic twin, a fifth leg protruding from its back, was shot and killed Saturday. The above report and the comments made in the above interview are interesting and somewhat insightful in regards to animal social habits. But the video also displays some ignorance pertaining to genetic variation and deformity. While the animal was deformed, such deformities are not communicable and do not denote illness as the hunter seems to believe.
The above video contains images of a deceased animal.
Where in the video did it imply anyone thought it was? That's what I was really watching for, but I didn't see it.
