Dog makes extremely rare and odd discovery

It’s not unusual for a dog to pick up and carry around the carcass of dead animals, to the dismay of its owner, but the creature a dog in North Dakota picked up wasn’t an ordinary animal.

What the dog owned by a rural Mandan resident dragged home was a two-headed white-tailed deer fetus, described by North Dakota Game and Fish Department as “extremely rare.”

“This is only the fourth such documented two-headed white-tailed deer reported in any literature since 1761,” the North Dakota Game and Fish Department wrote on Facebook.

“The female whitetail was hit and killed by a vehicle on ND Highway 1806 in April this year. The dog apparently found the unborn fawn nearby and brought it home.”

The resident contacted the Game and Fish Department. Officials came and retrieved the two-headed fetus and turned it over to their biologists.
