Bigracks is correct. The white buck was found dead near the road. Cry
There are reports that there is a white fawn nearby though.

The white deer is indeed dead. Cry baby

I heard that the DOW believes the deer was killed by a mountain lion, not hit by a vehicle as first suspected.

Just hopped back on this forum for an update. Bummer on the deer. At least it wasn't car vrs. deer too many of those these days in CO. I guess that lions do prefer white meat...good info!

piebald?

I think they call those animals piebald. They aren't true albinos because they have some color and dark eyes. They are rare and really unique animals.
Game farms have figured how to breed selectivly for piebald and albino animals and are doing that to sell those "trophy" animals to people...another topic all together.
Nice pictures! Hopefully he hangs around for a while.
