Did you just find the one slot like that or was the abnormality repeated in all sets you found?
No, I found slots like that all over the field. I've been doing a quick bit of Googling and found something called polydactylism, which it seems has been seen in Germany and Croatia.
Edit interesting link: Polydactyly in roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) - Springer

It looks like an imprint on another imprint to me!
I took photos of similar slots both nearby and at the other end of the field, so I think it's unlikely to be one on top of the other.
Looks like its almost a 'double foot' so to speak. Right hand side of the main foot print looks like another print. Would be interesting if you ever catch up with the culprit.
Looks like a roe print. not every one will be perfectly placed. some may just left,right behind. Quite common for the calf to follow in the mothers footsteps
Any more ideas on this guys? If it is polydactylism, is this something that any of you have seen before?
