Deer-Elk hybred shot in southern MN. From a Twin City TV station website. Artificial insemination at a game farm?
A southern Minnesota deer hunter nabbed himself a strange trophy.
Tom Legred, of Bricelyn, Minn., shot something recently that he and many others couldn't identify.
At first, they thought it was an albino deer, but the body and neck were longer than a normal deer.
It turns out it was something even more rare--a half-deer, half-elk mix, also known as a 'Delk.'
The animal was brought to the University of Minnesota for testing.
Legred hopes to have his trophy back one day so he can mount it over his fireplace.
