Woman Spots Rare Albino Buck in Her Backyard

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!

Climate Change Signs: How Do We Know?

Our climate is changing around us faster than predicted. From more frequent and extreme storms to unprecedented heatwaves, we’re indeed feeling the impacts of human-caused global warming. The icebergs are melting, various locations are experiencing greater flooding, wildfires are happening more frequently, and so on.

Specifically, scientists have studied past climate changes to understand the factors that can cause the planet to warm or cool. The big ones are changes in solar energy, ocean circulation, volcanic activity as well as the number of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Thus, they have each played a role at times. However, human activities are not an exception since it is believed to be main contributors to such increases in average global temperatures

And although we’re all concerned about climate change when it looks like a problem for future generations, we still ask ourselves, ‘will climate change even affect me?’ No matter what we care about, climate change is already affecting our world today. While we still have time to limit the worst impact, we have collected 15 great reasons to start acting now.

These photos illustrate the state of the planet and our climate, as it has changed over the past decade. They reveal how much seriously we must consider the climate change issues!
