Please, no hunting.....this guy anyway.

This was sent to me via e-mail from a friend of mine.

A very eventful day around here ... A once in many lifetimes experience!

I 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 mother deer around. And other car nearly hit it in front of me ...

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 DEP , who is going to send him to a Rehab farm. Maybe he will make it out of 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 is snow white, pink eyes, ears, nose and hooves. Kids called him POWDER. He is SO small. That is my shoe lying beside him ... 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

The pics didn't show but that's awesome!

My cousins and I saw a huge albino deer once when we were riding down the dirt roads. They gorgeous and magnificent animals!

The pics didn't work, but that's neat! I've seen a few of them. A ski hill up here had a pen of them when I was little. Very cool!

AWW, he is adorable. Though I don't think he should go back to the wild, albinos are easy targets, maybe a nice sanctuary will take him in. Just my opinion.

Oh my. What a stunner. I hope he finds a good home somewhere, where he is safe.

I agree. Theres a reason why albino deer are rarely, if ever seen. They're easy prey items to other animals and hunters. I would find a sanctuary or possibly even contact a zoo and see if anyone could take him if you can't keep him.

They are going to end up sending him to some kind of sanctuary cause it is a big no-no here to keep a deer as a pet. I don't know about eventually turning him loose, he would be an easy target for predators (though we don't have much here other than coyotes). There are laws protecting albino deer here and a person that tries to shoot it would end up in huge trouble. Most hunters around here respect that deer enough to leave it alone, there are plenty of others to hunt. There is a big albino buck that has been around here for years. I have never seen it but I have some friends that have.
