Re: DEER from a neighboring subdivision

When I worked at AT & T, there was a wildlife sanctuary nearby.  Every late afternoon, you could see a herd of deer grazing.  At the very end of the grouping would be an albino deer by itself.  One of the hunters in the group mentioned that protects the rest of the herd from being harmed.  Sad to see that lone deer !

I don't think Albie (my name for him) travels far.  I'm sure he stays with his herd.  We'd welcome him, of course, but I don't think he'll come.  We may drive thru this part of the lake to try to get pictures.  I believe there are more there.

I know albino animals are revered in many cultures, but have also read that they, just as albino humans once were, are shunned by others of their kind.  I hope Mr. Albie has friends so they can all watch out for one another.

 

I just hate to think that he might be lonely. 😔

Isn’t it the truth?

I feel the same way, grateful to have seen him, so happy he’s safe.

As always, Thank You, MW!   He's a beauty!  Of course, I love them all but being somebody who is seldom like others I totally appreciate his individuality and hope he can stay safe.

 

I love that your community is on board with not trying to hurt them, especially since it's a 'no hunting' area.
