    Shot this stag calf this morning and on gralloching, noticed these "hairy" growths, they felt hard like small testicles but they are not testes. Iv seen plenty hard black fibroids or melonoma on forestry beasts but these are quite different. One other abnormality, to us anyway, I can catagoricaly say this was a twin, 1 hind and 2 calfs , nothing else around and I could see a fair way. Anyone come across this?.

    They look like inguinal (scent) glands but not present in that species...........

    Did you incise one?

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    In the usual place.

    OK that rules out a really severe split scrotum! I wonder if they were a form of nevus - a congenital skin growth. Not common and to find two symmetrical ones is really odd
