 @--0--0127 I hate to see that but she looks like she is eating so that normally means she is doing ok. When a deer is in a lot of pain the first think they do just like any other animal they quit eating first.

Like Bogo said if she eating she is all right for now. I have seen three legged deer get along fine I guess infectio will be the biggest worry.

Maybe she's not hurt as bad as it appears in the picture. I hope so anyway.

I think that injury is all the way up the leg and into the shoulder by the way it is hanging there. Very unusual high awkward  position for her to be holding it for a hoof injury. Normally if it was just the hoof they will just hold it a couple inches off the ground. I hope you get some more pictures of her.

There was a doe with three legs behind the house and she has had twins the past couple of years.

I agree with everyone, she seems to be in good health otherwise and continuing to eat and thats a great sign. She doesn't appear to have any open wounds so I don't think infection should be a problem.

we actually have a 4-point buck with the front right hoof off! But it eats just fine. So maybe we'll get him this year.

The angle seems to suggest it is an injury, and not just her scratching herself or even just a deer trying to look 'cultured' by holding the pinky hoof up while eating!  However, they do tend to do pretty good despite some pretty significant looking injuries.

Man that is a serious injury.  It looks like she is healthy still.
