Shot a Fallow Doe with a broken leg this morning. Spent some time trying to see if she had a fawn at foot or was lactating. Finally managed to see there was no udder so shot her to put her out of her misery.
On Gralloching I discovered a long & thin hard uterus. I dissected it to reveal a single long bone about five inches long, along with some hair.
I'm assuming she had an almost fully developed fawn and suffered her leg injury, and the fawn was reabsorbed in order to heal the leg fracture.
Can anyone offer any more information or opinions.
