We have a young deer whose neck and chest are totally covered with warbles. Should this deer be removed from the herd? We have about 20 deer that hang out regularly on our property. We have lived here 25 years and never seen this before.

I would contact the local Wildlife Officer Patrick Muldovan 614.902.4214. They can advise you on what to do, they may also want to come out and examine the animal to ensure there is no other disease issues.
