An unfortunate deer covered in tumors, has been caught on camera by a photographer in the southwestern part of Minnesota.

Citypages reports that Carrow was shooting senior portraits at Pipestone where the wart-covered deer walked by.

Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, told Citypages that the deer was suffering from a severe case of fibroids. “They are popularly referred to as skin tumors, or simply warts,” the Department explains on its web site.

Fibromatosis, however, is not the cause of deer deaths, according to the officials, who added that the disease is not known to infect them. The Quality Deer Management Association notes that, in particular, a dense fibroids can have an impact on a deer’s vision, breathing, nutrition, or mobility, that is, they may be more at risk from predators.

“The most important significance lies in the excitement and care, as experienced by the hunter who shoots a deer, is covered with an ugly-looking chunks,” the Ministry said. “But they don’t harm the meat, fibromas are repulsive to most people, and thus to render it of a nice trophy is aesthetically objectionable.”
