Some reasons that can be thought and my response
- Was it hungry? Does not look like as monsoon was just over and grass was plentiful.
- For salt? May be, but not sure.
- The deer might just be playing? I watched for nearly five minutes and its action didn’t look so.
- It might be a piece of wood. I clearly watched and it was not so.
Our guide and the driver said that they were seeing such a thing for the first time. Bit surprised as they would have spent most of their life in jungles. They had seen a tiger eating grass but not a deer eating the antler.
I am no expert in these matters. Can anyone throw some light on the strange case of this spotted deer?
