This morning I received a phone call from a friend, rather puzzled by a curious fact. In anAlpine gorge he found the carcass of a red stag, killed by an avalanche. As the antlers were nice my friend cut, boiled the head and put it to dry, with the skull up and the antlers down. After a while the antlers started dripping a liquid, looking like dark blood. Consider that the stag died in February or March, i.e. before casting the antlers and that it was standing, kept by the snow. Has anybody found anything similar? Has anybody an explanation?
