Unicorn-like deer spotted in Italy

From the breitbart.com article:
Officials at a nature center in Italy have spotted a 10-month old deer that looks a lot like the mythical unicorn, the Italian news agency ANSA reports.

Instead of a normal pair of antlers, the young buck has only a single horn.

“Our deer may be aware that he is different since he doesn’t allow himself to be seen very easily,” Gilberto Tozzi, director of the Prato Natural Science Center in Tuscany, told ANSA.

Tozzi says an anomaly similar to that of the center’s deer may be responsible for unicorn mythology that dates back to the writings of the Greek historian Herodotus in the Fifth Century B.C.

It’s proof that the mythical unicorn celebrated in iconography and legends was probably not just a fantastic creature but a real animal,” Tozzi said.
