The photos taken by a photographer in Minnesota in a forest became viral on social networks.
Photographer Julie Carrow photographed a deer covered by so many tumors you can hardly see its eyes.
The photos of this suffering deer were published by Julie Carrow on her Facebook page in July of this year, and they went viral in a very short time.
The Minnesota Natural Resources Department said that the deer suffers from a sever case of fibrosis, a condition that is not contagious for humans and not fatal for the deer.
However, this condition can affect things such as sight, respiration, feeding or mobility, which makes these animals a lot more vulnerable for predators.
