Not an Albino, but Close

Photos of this white-tailed doe are making the rounds on the Internet this morning.
This piebald was allegedly photographed on a roadside somewhere in Wisconsin. We have
not confirmed the location, but it is a nice specimen.

Like albinos, partially white deer (piebalds) are the result of genetic mutations.
They are, in fact, inferior animals from a herd-health stanpoint and are often shunned
by other deer.

    THERE ARE A FEW OF THESE PIEBALD WHITETAILS IN OUR AREA AS WELL.
    AS FOR SHOOTING THESE ANIMALS OR NOT DEPENDS ON THE HUNTER.
    PERSONALY I WOULD FOR TWO REASONS……..ONE BEING THE TROPHY AND THE SECOND, THE FACT THAT THESE ARE GENETICLY DIFFERENT FROM THE REST AND DETRIMENTS THE QUALITY OF THE LOCAL HERD.
    I HONESTLY DONT THINK THEY ARE’NT AS SMART AS THE OTHERS BASED ON THE FACT THAT 1 DOE IN PARTICULAR HAS BEEN IN THE SAME AREA FOR 3 SEASONS NOW AND I KNOW DOZENS OF DEER HAVE BEEN HARVESTED ON THE CAME PROPERTY. BUT SHE STILL SHOWS HERSELF EVERY YEAR. Posted by: MIKE FROM WEST VIRGINIA
