I shot a Chinese Water Deer doe a couple of days ago. The animal looked perfectly healthy in life and was eating when I shot it. The only strange thing about the gralloch was that one 'lobe' of the liver had a different colour, size and texture to the 'main lobe'.
The smaller 'lobe' was hard, pale in colour and when slit with a knife the internal texture was 'gritty'.
The main 'lobe' looked and felt perfectly normal and when incised there was no evidence of liver fluke.
Can't find any references to this condition on the net so anybody got any ideas?
