Subject: FW: Albino Whitetail Deer
This deer was found by a family in Sweet Home, Oregon.
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 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.
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 ; But, here
are a couple of pix to show ya. 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......
