    Here are photographs of a single-toed CWD that I shot in Norfolk last month. Has anybody seen or know of anything similar?

    Yes, interesting. I have never even seen a CWD in the wild but have heard about monodactyly in deer only once before - about 20 years ago my guest shot a roe buck in North Galloway with a similar slot. The buck was in perfect condition, the other 3 hooves and antlers were normal.

    I guess it's just a congenital deformity in the same way X in every 1,000 people have 6 toes (polydactyly) The guest is German so thought it was great and it's mounted on the shield with the head. I'm afraid it was before the days of digital cameras but I will ask him to photograph it on the wall.

    Now that's just plain racist! I just hope it remembered to send its sister a Mother's Day card........
