    Have you PM'd Morena? I'd bet he has some - he posted some before at: http://www.thestalkingdirectory.com/...TB-in-Roe-Deer

    If it doesn't have to be roe deer you could try the BPG here: http://www.bestpracticeguides.org.uk..._diseases.aspx

    Alternatively there are some good photos from the US: http://www.michigan.gov/emergingdise...6392--,00.html

    Hi Cap

    Have got some belters of TB in Fallow but not Roe.

    They are on normal 35mm film so would have to dig em out and scan them in.

    It was a proper advanced stage i.e. golf ball sized white cists in the vital organs and also detached and swimming around forward of the diaphram.

    "Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water... BAM! A f**kin bullet rips off part of your head! Your brains are laying on the ground in little bloody pieces! Now I ask ya. Would you give a f**k what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing?"

    Excellent photos!

    Out of interest, what was the consistency of the tumours/lesions? I can see you cut one open - was it soft or grainy/chalky? Were they throughout the gralloch or concentrated anywhere in particular?

    If you have any more photos (close-ups?) I'd be really interested to see them.

    The inside of the growths were like hard cheese.
    The growths were concentrated on the inside of the rib cage, liver and spleen.
    The lymph glands were full of compacted chunks of a similar consistancy, a bit like butter beans!!
    I do not have many pictures and what I have are not very good as they were taken in the days before I could afford a digital camera.
    I'll look out what I have and bring them on our next Wiltshire meet up.
    If I can find the lab report I'll bring that as well.

    Many thanks for the added info. Sorry for more questions, but were all the (obvious) lymph nodes infected, or just some, e.g. were the mesenteric enlarged as well?).

    The lab report would certainly be interesting to see. I don't think I'll get the next Salisbury bash as I'm likely to be in Germany for work, but if plans change I'll definitely try to make it.

    Thanks again

    Is the any chance of you putting up the lab report or sending me a copy by P.M as I am very interested in this thread.
    Thanks
