Photos: Illinois Hunter Bags Five-Legged Deer
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
It being the first deer he’d ever shot, Tony Zajac wasn’t quite sure how unusual his buck was—despite the fact that it had a fifth leg growing out of its chest. Tom Micetich, deer project manager for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, on the other hand, was pretty clear: It is a freak, a rarity, a one-in-a-million find, he said. “Most of the freaks end up dying because some predator gets them. This is just one of those oddities.”
