Deer like that are not called
part albino. They are called pieballed deer

Sorry I'm only 13 and I'm not good at spelling. It should be piebald

I'm a hunter but I say "let this one go." It'd be interesting to see what natural selection (absent human efforts to get this one) may do with the genes.

I'm going to be really honest, an outdoor magazine referring to this deer as "part albino" really doesn't inspire much confidence.

Um, just to clear things up here -- there's no such thing as a "part-albino" anything. It either is or it isn't. This is what is known as a piebald deer. An albino deer (of which is extremely rare) is 100% white & has pink eyes, a pink nose & pink hooves. These animals lack body pigment altogether. Piebald deer just have abnormally large patches of white on them - nothing more. Though this "defect" does create quite a spectacular image. I wouldn't mind having one of these wandering around my back yard. Great pics! :)

Jeffery,
If you had a brain you would know that a white and brown deer is a piebaled. It's real man like to call a 13 year old a retard you jack a$$.

and its a whitetail deer not a donkey

jeffery

This deer reminds me of a condition that a friend of mine has called vitiligo. That's where your immune system attacks the pigment producing cells in a patchy pattern.

Cool looking deer, though.

HI
I just saw one of these deer tonight in a hay field. We never ever would think we would see a deer like that he/she was beautiful! We are from upstate NY and thought that this kind of deer would be more up north than up here please right back with some info if you could please. Thank you .
