    Here is one I shot that is similar to the one "Blackwaterkatz" found. I came grazing through an overgrown pasture with a herd of cows. I didn't realize anything was wrong with it until I tried to drag it by the back legs to get it out of a thicket. At that point I found one hind foot was missing. I have to hang it at the corner of a wall because the left beam bends backwards instead of forward.

    Probably damaged it or bumped it hard early in the year. That can cause weird growth for a couple years. Eventually they go back to normal usually.
