OK, that was a piebald deer, not an albino
All right, my hunting friends have informed me that the deer I wrote about in the previous post is a "piebald" deer, and not an albino.
Piebalds deer, like albinos, are genetic freaks of nature that are also extremely rare. But they differ from albino deer in that they have some brown coloration, sometimes resembling a pinto or appaloosa horse. If you look closely, you'll see that the deer below has brown on the top of its head and some on its body.
Also, albinos have pink eyes. This deer, like nearly all whitetail deer, has brown eyes.
OK, then. I've learned something today. Thanks to everyone who emailed or posted on facebook to straighten me out on this.
