Aack! Bambi gots six legs!
When I saw this, I thought it sounded oddly familiar--that's because a hunter bagged one with 7 legs in Wisconsin in 2006. I would have thought something like this would have little to no chance in the wild, but I think the Wisconsin deer was full grown.
Looks like something from Greek Mythology, don't it? Hexafaun?
Anyway. It had to get it's second tail removed and is recuperating at a Rome, Ga vet clinic. It will be moved to UGA's deer facility to live out its life.
This sort of thing would become part of the local folklore here. There'd be some story attached to it. Something. Let's make one up.
