That Story of a Two-Headed Whitetail Deer? REAL (Photos)
In May 2016, a mushroom hunter in the Minnesota woods found a newborn, but dead, whitetail fawn. A whitetail fawn with a single body and two heads.
According to LiveScience.com, the guy who found the fawn(s) took them to the Minnesota DNR, who turned them over to researchers. The case study has just been published and, according to Gino D'Angelo, the author of the study and now assistant professor of deer ecology and management at the University of Georgia, "We can't even estimate the rarity of this." In fact, this is the first documented case of conjoined whitetail deer twins brought to a full term birth.
Can't imagine these two would live very long anyway in the wild, anyway. But, good Lord, what kind of issues would that bring up during hunting season?
