An Albino Deer – A 1 in Million Occurance

I got this message emailed to me today by my mom’s friend in Wisconsin. Apparently a deer jumped out in front of her car and when they went to rescue it they saw it was an albino deer. Looks pretty cute…

A very eventful day around here. A once in many lifetimes experience! Mark saw this lil’ feller run out in front of a car, thought it was a lost baby goat. Stopped to get it, and WOW. A real Albino Whitetail Deer. Just hours old, but doing fine. No Momma deer around. Another car nearly hit it in front of Mark.

Well, he is THE neatest and cutest thing any of us ever saw. And such a ‘freak of nature’, that only 1 in more than a million are even born. He took his bottle of food, followed us around the house, doing great.  We called the Zoo & Fossil Rim and both were interested, but we’re actualy going to send him to a Rehab farm. Maybe he will make it in captivity somewhere and be appreciated. I hope so.  These deer are very rare. We wanted to keep him but it’s not the right thing to do – and not legal either.

Here are a couple of pix to show ya. He was snow white, pink eyes, ears, nose and hooves.  Our kids called him Powder. He was SO small. That is my shoe lying beside him.

Pass this around, a lot of folks have never and will probably never see even another picture of an Albino deer fawn……
