    I have seen a few White Deer around Bridgeport, WA. The first time you see them it is a shock!

    I have seen one albino, but around here they are ostracized from the rest of the deer population :(
    Those are gorgeous!! I would love to see them :D:D:D

    Isn't that pretty! I had quite a scare with a deer coming home one night a few weeks ago. I just caught her in my vision on the passenger side and started to slow down..I drive like a grandma anyway so I always go the speed limit. When I realized she wasn't going to stop I slammed on the brakes. I bumped her hind quarter really hard on the drivers side front bumper. Luckily she kept going and there wasn't even a scratch to my car. Thank Goodness. On both counts..I can't stand the thought of hurting an animal..

    I bet they're hard to hunt when there is snow on the ground. :)

    Oh what beautiful creatures. Makes one wonder if they are what started the "unicorn" myth?

    Never know! Living in Southeast Louisiana, I wonder if I would ever know. I can always wonder. It would be great to see this in person.

    OMG, who would want to kill one of these??!! Bad enough to kill a normal deer.

    The Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon had some white deer (don't know if they're still there). And there used to be a white deer family that hung around some cattle over by Salem, Oregon.....really odd to see!

    I've seen the herd of white deer in the Seneca Army Depot in New York State and they are awesome to see.

    There were two near Homer Lake in Champaign County, Illinois this year but I wasn't fortunate enough to get to see them. Maybe they'll still be there next year. Wow, a herd of them! That's really strange. It must be because of the camouflage of the winter snows that they've survived so well.

    There was a herd of them in central PA for years. They were on private land. Many would go visit/feed them. Sadly they broke thru the fence & escaped & are now long gone.

    I've also seen a few albino white tail deer in central PA. Not all were 100% white tho. Some still had areas of darker color. Many hunters will not shot an albino, as they feel it's a curse.

    They are Albino Whitetail deer. My ex-neighbor kept exotic aninmals and he once had several on his property. They are really pretty in the snowy wooded area in the video.

    That is really neat that it is a whole herd of them. When we lived on Whidbey Island, WA, it was a trapped deer population and we had lots of white deer in our neighborhood. They weren't albino, though. Some of them had brown heads and brown spots down their backs but white everywhere else. We had pinto deer!
