I had exactly the same condition in a roe i shot about a year ago and I ended up condemning the carcase. Although the animal was acting quite normally it was appreciably underweight.
The animal was acting normal not limping and a body weight dressed at 47 lb but soon as I seen that condemned it as well
Were the lymph nodes all OK out of interest?
I would be keen to know if that was an infection from an external injury or whether it was internal.
No sign of an external injury but it ruptured as the skin pealed back and I wasn't looking for any foreign bodies as there was so much puss
Thanks, I was just curious as sometimes external injuries can become infected very fast and as such remain localised, however I would err on the side of caution in this instance and like you rejected the carcass entirely. Doubt old BG would have been too put of though!

Is this called septic authorities?
