A muntjac leg hung on barbed wire.
I wonder what happened here?

Not only is it a peculiar sight to come across, but has an ominous aura about it.
Maybe the answer is that someone found the leg and placed it on the fence.
I have had some uncomfortable incidents climbing over barbed wire fences, but this looks serious!
Well it might not be as sinister as it looks. A muntjac has no need to jump a three strand barbed wire fence. I’ve seen these little deer squeezing through a 150mm square aperture stock fence.
I don’t believe this deer was caught up on barbed wire; I think it died elsewhere. The question is what killed this young deer?
Gruesome but a fact
