Real Unicorn steps out of the forest

'Unicorn' deer is found in Italian preserve

A deer with a single horn grown straight out of its head has been observed and photographed in Italy:

"...This is fantasy becoming reality," Gilberto Tozzi, director of the Center of Natural Sciences in Prato, told The Associated Press. "The unicorn has always been a mythological animal..."

I've blogged before about mythical animals or cultures turning out to have a basis in reality (here,and here). It's always foolish to ridicule myth.
