Default 7-legged deer killed in Wisconsin

What has seven legs, male and female reproductive organs and nub antlers?

It sounds like a bad joke, but it?s what Rick Lisko found in his driveway late last month.

Lisko hit the seven-legged nub buck while driving his truck through the woods down his mile-long driveway near Mud Lake in the town of Osceola on Nov. 22.

?It was definitely a freak of nature,? Lisko said. ?I guess it?s a real rarity.?

Lisko had slowed down as a buck and two does ran across the driveway.

?All of a sudden we felt the truck stop,? he said.

The small buck had run underneath his truck, Lisko said. When he got out to look at the deer he noticed three- to four-inch appendages growing from the rear legs and later found a smaller appendage growing from one of the front legs.

?It?s a pretty weird deer. It kind of gives you the creeps when you look at it,? said Lisko, who described the extra legs as looking like ?crab pinchers.?

The appendages were moving when he first saw them, Lisko said.

?They were actually functional,? he said.


Nothing like it

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Warden Doug Bilgo came to Lisko?s property to tag the deer.

?I have never seen anything like that in all the years that I?ve been working as a game warden and being a hunter myself,? Bilgo said. ?It wasn?t anything grotesque or ugly or anything. It was just unusual that it would have those little appendages growing out like that.?

Bilgo took pictures and sent the information to DNR wildlife managers. He thinks the anomaly is a birth defect.

John Hoffman has worked at Eden Meat Market ? which processed over 1,000 deer this year ? for over 40 years. He skinned the deer for Lisko.

?I see a lot of deer and I?ve never seen anything like that,? he said. ?It just was a rarity. It was something different that you never see.?

That just looks like a really big dew (sp?) claw, not extra legs.

Those shouldn't be considered legs... they are just little extra hooves.

And I'm really surprised that a 7-legged deer wasn't fast enough to get out of the way.

Hehehe

If he's smart, he'll put it on ebay. Golden Palace would probably pay a fortune for something like that.
