    Could be a French Noir, they look black from one angle then more of a brown from another. Even the legs are very dark just the bottoms of the feet are pale.

    One of the shoots I used to beat on did the same but only 50 fine then on beaters day all the syndicate guns put 20 in a pot and it was there for any beater who could shoot it. Funny in 5 seasons before the shoot folded it was never seen on beaters day
