Anyone observed this in deer? I have shot quite a few deer which dropped on the spot or walked a short distance and died and on several occasions I've had other deer walk up to the deceased deer and begin licking the wound. On one occasion two deer began this licking behavior (I believe they were a sibling and the mother of the dead deer). Every once in a while the deer doing the licking will change posture and go into a flehmen like posture and then resure licking. Upon retrieval of these deer they were licked clean on the exposed side.
