Chipmunks and deer are not that closely related but this one has quite the resemblance. Is this deer packing it away for a late night snack?

A little history: This deer showed up in someone's backyard.  Both cheeks are puffy (as opposed to just one) and the masses appear to be centered at that location.  Otherwise, the deer appears healthy.

Dr. Justin Brown, PGC Vet, will provide a diagnosis in an upcoming post.
