D&DH just received this via email today

This was sent by a man in Rhinelander, Wisconsin

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
Momma deer around. Another 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 th an 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. Here are a couple of pictures to show
you. 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??
