    Growths on liver

    Hi all

    I shot this Roe yesterday as soon as I opened it up I could see somthing was wrong.
    The white bits on the liver was inflated, very hard, large and full of fluid.
    Just taking it to the local abbatoir to see what they have to say.
    Will let you know.

    Not the best picture - have you any more? Looking like fluke from the limited information

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Just a guess, could it be Taenia hydatigena? All the best 1995rs

    Not Taenia - too thick walled and not a clear fluid. It looks like bile and a thickened bile duct so Apaches thoughts on fluke are probably right. If you have any more photos, could I get some copies please for a talk I'm doing in January for the local deer group - on fluke.

    Due to this years high rainfall Liver Fluke is at an all time high. in some parts of the country.

    Here in North East Fife we have recently had unprecedented numbers of sheep die due to fluke.

    I have not seen any signs of fluke in any of the deer I have shot lately but I fear it is only a matter of time!

    I have heard of a couple of Roe carcasses being found with no apparent signs of injury or causes of death.

    Fluke could well have been the culprit!
