Malignant catarrhal fever in deer

Malignant catarrhal fever in deer

Malignant catarrhal fever in deer is incurable and invariably fatal, and if diagnosed the animal should be put down as soon as possible to prevent further suffering. It is probably contracted from sheep, so deer and sheep should never be grazed together. This red deer stag shows typical discharges from the eyes and nose.
