8 Horrible, Nasty Deer You Wouldn’t Even Serve Your Enemies for Dinner


Cancer, ticks, warts, and insect larvae are just a few of the maladies that have caused these deer to earn the honor of being among the eight nastiest looking deer around.

Whatever the reason, nasty is nasty and these deer have reached the height of deformity.

Warning, some of these pictures are grotesque and stomach-turning. You may lose your appetite!
