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

So, from what you are saying, if I want to realize my childhood dream of being a Superhero, I need to eat this deer, and I can have Special Powers?

:P

I saw this before, but I will repeat myself: White Deer are RARE, wait for him to get his velvet antlers and take a knife to it. Damaging the antlers during it's velvet and it will sometimes cause abnormalities such as a point growing downward instead of upward. This makes it's rack just that much more rewarding when you shoot him and put him on the wall.

Where are you located and what times of the day is the freak outside?

He must go above my mantle.

In Celtic myth, the deer in the form of the white doe or white stag was often a messenger and guide from the Otherworld.

It may also appear when one has violated a geis or taboo. The white stag is also indicator of an impending quest.

I wonder where this little guy ended up?
