Albino Deer

Subject: albino deer


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 Mama 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 lying beside him... WOW..how cool is that??

(pics where here)

Pass this around, alot of folks have never and

will probably never see even another picture of an Albino deer fawn,C

I have never seen an albino whitetail. I didn't even know that they existed. I would have mistaken it for a goat too. :?

they are really are fairly common in captivity, they sell them in the animal finders guide alot. There are also leucistic deer-white with blue eyes, and piebalds. I like the piebalds best! The white ones look a little too much like fallow deer.

What a lovely little animal!


Good thing for her that she wasn't born here:
I remember an albino deer born somewhere in Germany some two years ago. When a hunter noticed her, they wanted to shoot her - claiming they had to "put her out of her misery" because she wasn't "normal" and would not survive, being repelled by her relatives (which is ridiculous considering the animal was adult and not an escaped captive-bred; not to mention the considerable amount of Scandinavian white deer that are perfectly fine living with their "normal" specimen - there, hunters who shoot a white deer are said to die within a year, so nobody hurts them :mrgreen: ). Also, they feared she might easily be seen by (long-extinct) predators (other than humans, there are none left that could kill an adult deer). Of course, people accepted their excuse for hunting the poor thing. People's ignorance or indifference is depressingly incredible...
I don't know what has become of her in the end. I think she escaped, but I am not sure.

I like the ones in the photos of your website with the white faces; do most of them have blue eyes?

yes, it must of been, I doubt there is anywone else that raises such beautiful deer in butler county.

I looked at your site, and it is great. the deer you have are so beautiful and unique.

I thought of getting deer awhile back. but, I have heard they spook easy.
I would be afraid now, because of all the different animals I have now.

glad to see you joined us here. I don't think there are any members here that live near me. you are only about half hour from me..

what kind of permit/s do you need for your deer?
I have heard the pgc has turned deer over to the "dept of agri"
glad of that, at least you don't have to deal with pgc..

Yes most Pied Deer have Blue eyes
Then there are Three different Color/Types of White Whitetails
Albino Have Pink Eyes
Piebald Normally have Blue(a piebald can have all white hair)
Then Seneca Whites Have Brown
In Pa you need a CERVIDAE LIVESTOCK OPERATOR LICENSE (CLO)
A CLO license application replaces the propagators permit. There is no fee at this time. All cervids behind a fence must have a CLO including: zoos, farms, hunting preserves and owning them as pets. The only exception is a herd owner that has a menagerie permit (issued by PGC)

ALSO If you Get a fawn you can get them Used to about anything.
You are more then welcome to come for a visit anytime.Our deer love visitors!
I found this site by searching for info on Emu...I may get some this week ;)
