Rare Albino Deer 'Ghosts of the Forest' Seen in Tennessee

The odds of an albino deer being born is super rare. Depending upon the source, it can be anywhere from 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 100,000. Having the privilege of ever seeing one must be even more of an anomaly! Check out that 12-point buck. 

Some hunters feel they should be able to harvest these rare animals, but it is illegal to kill them in Tennessee.

Several comments on The Tennessee Wildlife Resources facebook page were against the law saying, 

"It would be even more special to allow hunters the chance to harvest that genetically inferior buck. Just sayin." 

and 

"I cannot understand why we can’t. It’s not a desirable genetic trait. They generally suffer from other issues as well. If we are for the betterment and health of the herd why not take out the genetic issues that are contributing negative attributes."

What do you think? 

 

Reports of Albino Deer sightings have been coming in from Brentwood, Smyrna and other Middle Tennessee locations.
