Not written by me by the folks along the coast..

Albino Fawn  from folks who live on Bolivar Peninsula , Texas        

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 Moma 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 going to send him to a Rehab farm, at a vet that we have never gotten along with... So, one of   Dad's best friends is our Game Warden. Kinda reluctantly, but, I called him and told him the deal. He came right over, of course... and assured me that he wouldn't take it to that vet, that he was going to 'go to higher levels' than that with him.. So, he is gone now. We got a lot of pix, and something we will never see again probably, so it was very cool. 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 lyi ng beside him... WOW..how cool is that??

Take care of yourself, God is watching.
Don't hang yourself from your hand in a dark ally.
Even if you talk alone he'll always find you.
He knows, so tell him your sins. Tell him, even if you don't know his face.
But what am I doing to do if heaven's doors are closed to me?

[attachmentid=23651]There is an isolated population of white deer at the former Seneca army depot near where I live in NY. apparently they are a subspecies, not albinos. There are about 200 of them in the herd.

It is cool, but not terribly unusual.  Here in northen Minnesota where we have a massive deer population, you get an albino every once and a while.

But also, there have been several sighting of a large albino moose in our area.  That is highly unusual.

Thats cool. We've got an almost albino deer that pratically lives in my friends backyard not too far from where I live. I say its almost albino because its all white, but has one brown spot on its side.
