I knew this. I believe I saw it on a show called the year of the whitetail. Their might be one of the trailcam sites that have pics too. Not sure.

I believe the does also eat the afterbirth too,(actually don't most all female wild animals?)

Deer are herbivores so never heard of that but who knows out in the wild.
