SE MN Mushroom Hunter Finds Two-Headed Deer
A Southeastern Minnesota mushroom hunter discovered something very rare 2 years ago near the unincorporated town of Freeburg, MN. The man discovered a dead fawn with two heads, which is thought to be the first conjoined deer of its kind to ever make it to term!
The man called the Minnesota DNR, which sent out a researcher named Gino D'Angelo.
D'Angelo along with the Minnesota DNR's Louis Cornicelli, and Christina Clarkson and Arno Wuenschmann, of the University of Minnesota's veterinary department, just published research of the incredible discovery.
What was remarkable about the fawns other than the fact they had two separate necks and heads, but the same body, was that they look to have been groomed by its mother – meaning they made it to term.
This is a pretty rare find as researchers noted that conjoined twins in animals are much more common in domesticated animals like cattle and sheep. You can even view the rare find at the Minnesota DNR headquarters in St. Paul.
