Three black-tailed deer stepped over the boards to drink in the confined space of the spring.
The one that caught my eye was this doe.
She has notched ears, which make her identifiable in the field.
She also has scars on her neck, and they are not completely healed.
I believe there are two punctures on the left side (the right side of the screen) -- there's a large tear at the base of the neck, and a smaller one midway in the track of missing hair.
The angle of the picture doesn't show the right side of the neck very well.
If there is a puncture, you can't see it.
The skin was also torn across the neck.
Here's a different view.
In the third picture, you can see scars on the upper left leg and shoulder.
Any opinions out there as to what might have caused these wounds?
