   Pretty neat. I have never seen one but I did see a pied one a couple years ago and 2 years ago I watched a baby albino coon grow from a kit to near grown. I did not see him last year so I don't know if he survived that winter.

Sorry but I don't know why my comments did not post originally.

We started seeing an albino deer this spring running in the woods around us.  It comes out and feeds like normal but still weird any time you see it.  It is snow white but other than that appears to be normal.  This is not a great photo but all I could get from car last week.

   I've seen a number of pie-bald deer , some well over 50% white , but never a true albino . The odds of survival from birth on must be incredibly small.

Just started having an albino fawn come in with other deer. Mother is normal, there is a history of albino’s in this area.

This place is about 20 miles from us. We sometimes see them when driving by. We have had a couple close by over the years.

Another point regarding albino deer, or actually any albino critter is that just because they're white doesn't make them an albino!

   Yes, they could just be a white phase animal. My coon 2 years ago was a true albino with the pink eyes and pink toes and such. His siblings were normal colored cook kits.
