    Above is a liver from a scrawny, but normal looking buck (8kg larder weight) shot the previous day. Any thoughts on the cause of the lesions you can see? I know, but they were so striking I thought I'd post it.

    Those have to be man made. Not that you did them deliberately but has the liver been lying on something. The pattern is to regular and evenly spaced to be a natural disease

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    If you look at the top of the liver you can see the liver isn't flat but have bumps. I'd agree that its been sitting in a Culinder and the bumps onto top are where the liver has squeezed through the culinder holes.

    Spot on!

    I'd got quite a bit of hair on it so rinsed in a salt solution and left it to drain. The first dots I saw were the ones on the right hand side, and wondered how I'd missed this sign of potential septicaemia at the gralloch until I saw the lovely neat circle of raised dots! You can get similar lesions in lambs, though not with such geometric precision
