A Deer Struggling On

I’ve watched this deer for two years; very notable as the rear right leg has been broken and (apparently) healed. She gets around OK, but is never with the other deer — almost always on my side of the creek and alone.

Apparently the black spots are fibromatosis -- a type of common skin tumor, common in deer, called fibromas which are caused by a type of papilloma virus.
