In Virginia, during hot dry summers, deer are affected by hemmoragic disease caused by deer flies. Deers with the disease look skinny like the one in the picture. The disease also causes the hooves to come off. Some deer recover from it, but others die from fever and most carcuses are found in or near water. About 3 years ago, a game warden told me that he and a biologist counted more than 200 dead deer along the banks of a river in my hunting area.
