Albino Buck!!! Guess Again...

Postby 4khorn » Tue Sep 13, 2011 4:43 pm

This may be the strangest thing I have ever seen. But I'm sure it has a logical explanation. I was driving home from work this morning and I noticed a white figure up ahead in the ditch along the highway. As I drove past I saw it was a deer. I couldn't believe it, and albino roadkill !!! I had never seen an albino deer in person. So I turned around and went back for a closer look. I walked up to the deer and noticed something wasn't quite right. It wasn't an albino at all. It was covered in some sort of white powder. I am so confused by this. The powder is only concentrated on the deer, as if someone poured something on it. Can someone please explain this?? I was sort of bummed. I thought I was gonna give the DNR a call and have myself an albino buck in velvet for the wall. How cool would that have been???

My pursuit of a buck of a lifetime is much like the Chicago Cubs pursuit of a World Series...the season ends with a "wait til next year"

Most likely the white powder is lime. It is used to cut down on the odor
