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.
