A deer with a single horn has been spotted in Italy. Quote from an AP story:
- Single-horned deer are rare but not unheard of — but even more unusual is the central positioning of the horn, experts said.
- “Generally, the horn is on one side (of the head) rather than being at the center. This looks like a complex case,” said Fulvio Fraticelli, scientific director of Rome’s zoo. He said the position of the horn could also be the result of a trauma early in the animal’s life.
