    Its saddening to see a un healthy animal , did you explore the growth any further if so what do you think caused it ?

    We had a fallow doe in the park with a similar lump on her thigh it never affected her the vet said it looked like a mole and treatment would be more stressfull than the worth of it.

    So what's the thoughts on the lump. From what you say Wayne the animal is good to eat then. What sort of dog was quad rider letting loose.

    The growth had a small hole so not sure if something like a cut had started it off.the lump wasn't firmly attached it was under the skin and hanging down. On the dog thing it was a weimaraner he was on the neiboring land which wasnt his ,he had no idea I was there and was shouting at the dog to chase them but the dog had no intention of doing so just running around like a loon. He just turned the quad around and went off back to the village.
