Hermaphroditic deer with seven legs ‘tasty’
FOND DU LAC, Wis. - Rick Lisko hunts deer with a bow but got his most unusual one driving his truck down his mile-long driveway. The young buck had nub antlers — and seven legs. Lisko said it also had both male and female reproductive organs. "It was definitely a freak of nature," Lisko said. "I guess it's a real rarity.”

He said he slowed down as the buck and two does ran across the driveway Nov. 22, but the buck ran under the truck and got hit.

When he looked at the animal, he noticed three- to four-inch appendages growing from the rear legs. Later, he found a smaller appendage growing from one of the front legs.

(snip)
"It kind of gives you the creeps when you look at it," he said,

(snip)
"And by the way, I did eat it," Lisko said. "It was tasty."

1. sounds like a form of conjoined twin
one of the twins was absorbed into the other. If you look closely it probably actually has eight legs.

2. I don't believe it
He would have taken pictures of it if it had been true. Sounds like a tasty load of "bullshit" to me.

4. I'd be REAL worried about eating something so genetically incorrect
He should have donated to science for study--such things happen to humans, too.
