5-Legged Deer Shot


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.

kid icarus, I'm pretty sure meg was calling him a "stupid hick" because that's exactly what he looks like ... a typical redneck. Willing to bet he drinks Budweiser, smokes Marlboro cigs, drives a jacked up piece of crap truck that stands 20 feet high, and also has some 4 wheelers as well.

Oh this guy is an expert huh? So if he saw that the fawn was kinda an outcast ... then why the hell did shoot it instead of shooting a bigger deer? I smell LIES.

If it were true about it been an outcast and wasn't eating well then maybe he did do it a favour.

" Willing to bet he drinks Budweiser, smokes Marlboro cigs, drives a jacked up piece of crap..."

Five Legs, the ostracized white tail fawn! Everybody sing along!

All of the other white tails,
Used to laugh and call him names,
They never let poor Five Legs,
Join in any white tail games...

Don't denegrate others, please. By "Hick" I imagine you mean a Yokel, a derogotary term to refer to the stereotype of unsophisticated country people. Because of its strongly stereotypical connotations, the term is frequently considered derogatory.

If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Stupid Meg.

what a dumb ass. he did NOT need to kill it, i think most scientists would agree that the deer could live a normal healthy life. ignorant fool. people like that make me sick.

"such deformities are not communicable"

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.

It's really sad that a "man" would kill a deer, much less one that has overcome obstacles up until now. An armed man against an unarmed animal is relly FAIR! Get a life.
