Thread: Roe with slimy membrane

    Roe with slimy membrane

    Came across a roe buck this weekend that stood up when disturbed but only walked a couple of yards and lay down again only a couple of yards away and could not get up again after a quick dispatch and gralock all seemed to be ok.First thoughts were road accident but was over a mile to the nearest road but showed no obvious injury.This was taken to a game dealer/butcher who found a yellow slimey coating between the membrain and the coat and the skin allbut fell off.Sorry no photos.Dave

    Not a well buck! The slime you've seen is likely to be modified tissue fluid, possibly from a septicaemia, but also from low protein in the blood. Not an eater

    Was it by any chance near a Rape field? Rape poisoning is known to cause blindness and jaundice which would account for the symptoms you describe.

    No. It grows through the winter and is the reason pigeons are out of control. It is already flowering in some places where it has been so warm.

    There was no outward signs of anything wrong and certainly no loose motions as was the case in a red calf that was diagnosed with the disease Dave
