Albino Deer Fawn

Today, the pictures are much happier on the Cosmological Cabbage. These were forwarded to me by an animal-lover friend who in turn got them from a friend in Kamloops, British Columbia Canada.

This little fellow ran in front of a car, and the occupants thought that it was a goat. It was an albino deer who was lost. Albinos do not survive long in the wild because they are missing their protective coloration, and their eyesight is not that good. They are virtual sitting targets for prey.

This little guy is going to an animal rehab farm where he will be safe, and cared for. Albino deer are more than one-in-a-million genetic occurrences, and most people will never see a real one in their lives -- due to the rarity and low survival rate. This one got lucky.
