This was sent by a man in Rhinelander, Wisconsin
A very eventful day around here... A once in many lifetimes experience! ï¿½ I saw this lil' feller run out in front of a car-- thought it was a lost baby goat. ï¿½Stopped to get it, and WOW!! ï¿½A real Albino Whitetail Deer. ï¿½Just hours old, but doing fine. ï¿½No Momma deer around. Another car nearly hit it in front of me .
Well, he is THE neatest thing any of us ï¿½ever 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. So, we called the Zoo & Fossil Rim, who were both interested, but we're going to send him to a Rehab farm. Maybe he will make it in captivity somewhere and be appreciated. So rare... Sure wanted to keep him tho. but, not the thing to do. And not LEGAL either. ï¿½Here are a couple of pictures to show you. ï¿½ He was snow white, pink eyes, ears, nose and hooves. Kids called him POWDER. He was SO small. That is my shoe lying beside him... WOW..how cool is that??
Pass this around, a lot of folks have never and will probably never see even another picture of an Albino deer fawn......
