We have seen a lot of examples of albino animals. For those that don’t know, albinism means lack of pigment melanin. Today we have another one to add to the list. This adorable whitetail deer buck which has been spotted in a backyard in northern Wisconsin. Tracy Weese is the photographer behind these shots. She spotted the buck in her backyard in the unincorporated town of Boulder Junction. We can say she got very lucky to capture a shot like that since albino animals are extremely rare and don’t always make it to adulthood due to their lack of camouflage.
She shared the images in her Facebook page, which were later shared by the Vilas County Sherriff’s Office as well. The pics got a wider attention after that, where more than 8k people shared the post on Monday. Weese clarified that the deer was albino and not a piebald. Piebald or pied animals have a pattern of unpigmented spots on a pigmented background of hair, feathers or scales. She also added that the brown spotted on the deer’s head was ‘from him rubbing his antlers and head on trees when shedding his white velvet.
This creature looks like it just came out of a movie set that features an ice queen. This creatures are a rare sight because they either die early because of health issues related with the lack of pigment, or because they are an easy prey to spot for predators. However, we got lucky to witness this beautiful sight for once at least. Scroll down below to check out these shots Weese captured and enjoy!
