A day late and a deer head short

Due to various hunting-season duties, our wildlife officer wasn’t able to make it out to check out the mysterious flopping deer until Tuesday. By then, the carcass had been eaten by scavengers, and the head, as evidenced by tracks, had apparently been carried away by a bear. Did the deer merely take a fall and injure itself? Was there some wound we could not see? Or did it have some disease like chronic wasting? We’ll never know, mainly thanks todeer hunters breaking  laws and keeping our wildlife officer from investigating this case.
