Colt With Deer Head Freak Near Williston

Williston, N.D. May 12—According to Joe Mendro of Williston, he recently saw and examined a colt in a farmer's pasture near this city, which is perhaps one of the queerest freaks ever seen in this section. The colt, Mr. Mendro says, had a head not much different from that of an ordinary buck deer, and as nearly as he could tell he believed there were indications that one or more horns might presently grow out. Another peculiar fact about the animal was that the hoof of one foot was cleft into two divisions while the remaining hoofs were entirely natural.
