Thread: Muntjac Liver - Any Ideas?

    Muntjac Liver - Any Ideas?

    I shot 3 munties over the weekend and one had this in the liver. I'm hoping it's nothing too bad as I could only narrow it down to 2 carcasses and would hate to have to throw both away. I have just discarded the liver so far.

    Several of these throughout the liver, white spots on the outside, filled with little yellow balls (eggs?) - my BDS guide to disease only shows 2 liver issues - Fluke and White Spot, but makes little mention of the inside of them.

    Anyone identify what the issue is please? Click image for larger version.

    Oh - forgot to say everything else carcass wise seemed normal, included the portal nodes.

    Looks like tapeworm cysts to me.
    Carcase should be good to eat as long as not contaminated when cutting open the liver/cyst.
