I suspect it's safe to assume that this is one of those rumors that
get going; I expect that you'll hear a lot back on this and can pass
it on to whomever said that to you.
If I am not mistaken, the hind leg is a good place to find a large
muscle mass if one wants to give an injection into muscle tissue,
just like how little human kids are more likely to get those in the
rear rather than in their arms which are still too scrawny.
