A unique case has been reported where a whitetail deer was spotted with thick hair growing on its eyeballs in a Tennessee suburb. The hairs are growing due to a bizarre condition called corneal dermoids. When the locals spotted the deer, it was bleeding and disoriented. According to Chat Stwart, a deer biologist, Corneal dermoids "contain elements of normal skin, including hair follicles, sweat glands, collagen, and fat."
