I went with my wife to the Chinese grocery and saw this. It's blurry because I took it with my cell phone. My immune system for odd translations is pretty high, but things like this still catch my eye.

When they say "Deer's Tail Extract" I hope they mean some sort of juice which comes from the innards of the tail, and not what comes from below it. It also says "Oral Solution." That must mean there are other versions. That makes me wonder how you take it if not orally. Only one other way immediately comes to mind.

I'd been under the impression it was illegal to sell deer meat, but maybe the tail juice is a different thing. It seems cheap too at $4.99 seeing as how you'd have to kill a whole deer to get it. That is unless someone else was cleaning their deer and this company saw the deer's tail on the ground and asked if the cleaner needed that part.

OR... They don't kill the deer. Maybe they have a little deer farm and they come up to a deer and squeeze its tail kind of like the way cows are milked. Then they could reuse the deers. I should find out before I do any more speculating.


  1. What is it for? Some kind of illness? Or is it a beverage for any occasion?
    Just curious.

  2. Ha! They squeeze the tails and extract the juice! Ha!
    Yeah! wonder how they package the 'non-oral' version?

  3. Kw: That's a fair amount of deer tail juice for 5 bucks and change. Actually, it's sold most commonly as a aid to sexual performance. I googled (image) it and it is often sold with a whole different picture on the front (same price tough). -- Mykal

  4. Like most herbal medicines, it fixes everything in the world, but there's always a disclaimer on the package.

    Supposedly you drink it through a straw. I don't know why, but the thought of that makes it even more horrible to me.
