Default Amazing how tough these animals are. (GRAPHIC PICS)

Well,
I meant to post this a while back, but I'll do it now.
I was out shedhunting when I came across this deer in the woods. I video taped it for about 20 minutes. It was about -30 below, wind chill that day.
I assume it was either hit by a car and dragged, or more than likely it was caught in a fence, or maybe it was a coyotee attack. I'm really not sure. I couldn't believe it didn't bleed to death. It was walking around like there was nothing wrong with it. It wasn't bleeding, and was feeding just like the other deer I saw that day. It was limping a little bit, but not bad. It goes to show you how tough these animals are. I would assume by now the coyotees have found it, but , who knows. I called the conservation police and they said that they wouldn't send anyone out to put it down, because it was in a highly populated area, and nature would have to take its course. If I had a gun, I would have put it down, because I don't think it was going to survive.

Pretty Graphic pictures.

Looks like a "near miss" by a Hellrazor.

Seriously.....nature sure can be cruel.

Pretty amazing photage and how tough they are. I saw a show recently with a buck with it's neck ripped bad like this. They thought it was a cat attack. They never saw the buck again but it was acting like nothing was wrong.

I would assume she died of exposure that week. I'm sure she would have gotten frostbite pretty bad, especially being exposed like that. If I would have had a .22 pistol with me, I would have probably put her down myself.

I hear ya.....I would have done the same.

We've been trying to figure out "mechanism of injury" here at the firehouse. We are stumped!!!! You would think there would be more damage to other parts of the body if it was a vehicle hit.....and it is tough to imagine that a fence would do that (although we are not ruling it out).

Hmmmmmmmm????

Open wound to start possibly by a fence, then yotes or wolves on attack tore it down like a curtain, and she just made it out.
