Rick Lisko is a bearded Wisconsin mountain man who doesn't love much more than busting out his bow and slicing away some deer. But his biggest catch was a deer he hit with his truck; it turned out to have seven legs and both male and female reproductive organs.
The small buck had run underneath his truck, Lisko said. When he got out to look at the deer he noticed three- to four-inch appendages growing from the rear legs and later found a smaller appendage growing from one of the front legs. "It's a pretty weird deer. It kind of gives you the creeps when you look at it," said Lisko, who described the extra legs as looking like "crab pinchers."
"I have never seen anything like that in all the years that I've been working as a game warden and being a hunter myself," Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Warden Doug Bilgo said. "It wasn't anything grotesque or ugly or anything. It was just unusual that it would have those little appendages growing out like that."
Here's the best part of the story: "And by the way, I did eat it," Lisko said. "It was tasty." Yeah!
