Behold the fabled Tripod, a 3 year old doe who's been walking around on 3 legs for two years! We first saw her (injured) the winter of 2011. Saw her regularly last winter, and then she seemed to disappear. Sunday morning was looking out the back window at the herd of 15 deer in the field, and wondered out loud whatever happened to Tripod. Lo and behold, she was right at the edge of my yard! No idea how she lost it, but my guess is a broken leg from being chased by hounds. We've had other deer with busted legs show up after being run by the dogs.

This is one tough deer. Two winters on 3 legs and she looks pretty fat & happy. Gets around pretty good.




And heck, just for good measure, here's a couple of mangled turtles I've run up on...

Lefty,


and Shellshock.

Amazing it survived from infection or bleeding out.

Wonder if shellshock was a birth/hatch defect...

Poor baby!

Tough though.

I see a winter cow cocoon also. The deer need to be careful.

You guys have bear traps up there?

As for the wildlife up there, it is like the movie "Freaks" but with animals!

No bear traps around here.

One of those turtles is a Commonwealth citizen, the other hails from South Carolina.
