What could cause this? Any Vets on ATS.

This picture was shared on Facebook through some of my friends.

I am not going to go on and on about this topic. The picture is worth 1,000,000 words.

Originally thought to have been shot in a fracking area, of PA, but the story has changed and other sources posted.

***EDIT: Now the story has gotten interesting, and has been changed and sources questioned. I removed the persons name and posted original sources.

Apparently the deer was shot in Tenn too, now. This source seem much more credible and has a quote from the hunter.

The guy who killed it wrote:

"I killed this buck thursday. It was the nastiest thing I have ever
seen. I was told they were deer warts but nobody has seen any
this bad. I walked up to him at 25 yards in a bean field, he just stood up
and started walking towards me. I still had my climbing stand on my
back."










What does everyone think about the causes?

WHOA! I will not guess whether that is from fracking operations being leaked into the water but that is horrendous...I don't believe I have ever seen anything like it and I hope that I never do again.

Either way it was humane to put that animal down, I would love to read a full necropsy report if one was done. Is there any other information about this?

I bet that deer isn't very tasty


I have a feeling this picture will go viral with people. If more people saw this they would be pretty angry.

Or it could be cutaneous fibroma, which is a virus seen often with whitetail deer.

My guess is that it is the virus and not from fracking.

YIKES!! Gross! What is your friend planning on doing with it , maybe it should be documented and turned into some research group studying the effects of fracking..www.propublica.org...

I am glad someone put that poor thing out of his misery, he looks horrible.
How might fracking cause tumors though?

Your friend that shot the deer broke the first rule of finding and touching creatures in the woods with strange growths all over them.


Geez..... Has he not seen all the movies where this went horribly bad and resulted in an alien invasion of Earth?

What a noob.........

Wow. That's just terrible. I'm actually glad they put the poor thing out of its misery.
Can I have a link to this photo and info?

It could be caused by fracking, but I'm not going to discount the disease the other poster mentioned either. It would be good to keep an eye on this and post any updates. I hope they turned the deer into the game warden so studies and analysis could be done.

Agreed.

It could very well be something else, but apparently the area they live has noted leaks, and contaminated streams and ground water.

I have personally seen internal fibrous cyst's in and on deer's, but nothing like this.

in what area of PA do they live? I'm about 15 minutes from the border and do some hunting in PA and NJ.

Somebody should send that pic viral, and to obama, msm and let them know. if it can happen to animals, it can do this to humans to.

It may or may not be from fracking. Take it easy.

Maybe I'm missing something...

That post was done on August 17, 2007 and titled "(Dead) Wart-Covered Deer" ??

Exactly that is why I had to adjust the title and sources.

It would be interesting to hear from an expert on ATS about what exactly this is that plagued the deer.

It's very hard to make my stomach turn, but these pics did it.

I think it would be huge leap and dishonest to blame it on fracking without any testing or confirmation. I think people who have fanatical beliefs like to jump all over stuff like this in the same way the Chupacabra crowd labels every dog or coyote with mange as proof.

One thing I've noted is that the Obama Administration, which is clearly hand in hand with the most radical environmentalists, has no issues with fracking. That screams to me that the dangers are a myth spread by people more fanatical and less honest than they.

Since long before modern technology animals and people have been developing diseases and it has zero to do with any man-made causes. To even suggest without study this is anything else is absurd.

Agreed Blain.

To me it looks like warts, or some type of fiberous cysts, but I am no vet.
