When Hogwarts and its surrounding forest was destroyed at the capricious whim of its chronicler, not a single thought was given to the fate of the inhabitants of that forest.
Now it seems that a single unicorn was able to flee the carnage and has appeared in a forest in the grounds of the Center of Natural Sciences in Prato, Italy.
This young unicorn, disguised as a Red Deer, apparently has a twin which has the usual complement of horns.
As all red deer are quite shy, most sightings being made with binoculars, it has been difficult to obtain a photograph. Finally, with the use of a tele-photo lens, the staff at the center have been able to capture an image.
It seems this is a genetic flaw which has been recorded before in horned beasts but normally a single-horned deer have that horn on one side or the other. What is unusual, in this case, is the central location of the single horn.
My fear is that some big-time hunter, possibly with the surname “Cheney” will feel the urge to have this unique trophy mounted above his fireplace.
Alternatively there will be poachers seeking the horn for its aphrodisiacal properties.
Thanks for the tip, Cybe.
