    Second time in as many years where a family is found raising a deer they weren't supposed to have. We already have hair loss syndrome ravaging Or and WA and now CA blacktail herds. An Asian mite causes the disease and it just happened to show up near a deer farm in SW Washington where they apparently had Asian deer.

    Anyhow, the family will whine and cry and get to keep their deer and the state will trip over itself trying not to look like the bad guys. I'll offer a compromise. Let them keep the deer and fine them the maximum monetary amount with a court order barring them from possessing any other wiold animals

    What's the difference between that and an Albino?

    albino has no pigment pink eyes, ears and hooves piebald have spots could be all white or just one spot but still have propper pigment on hooves ears eyes and nose. antlers are different in albions too i think.


    also i found that there are more piebalds in or/wa after i googled it again after finding this article while trying to find an appropriate women's blacktail rifle

    There are a few of these we've seen so far roaming around. There's a doe in Estacada, one in Jewell's area, and one in the McIver State Park area. Back in 99', in the Alsea Unit, around the Falls City foothills a few hunters mentioned seeing an deformed buck w/Snowballs conditions but he was all white w/no spots. Since then, I haven't heard much about that buck.

    The last I've heard of Snowball was that she found a home at Wildlife Safari in Winston. She was placed in the children's petting zoo. She suffered from congenital and degenerative conditions, making it permanently disabled and also causing it arthritis and long-term pain. - This was from the Sept/Oct 2008 Oregon Hunter Magazine.
    NIV: Jeremiah 16:16 - "But now I will send for many fishermen," declares the Lord, "and they will catch them. After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks.

    I've seen quite a few of these around Redding, CA - and even taken pictures of a few... I'll have to see if I can find the pics... Most of the ones that I've seen are a fairly even color on their coats - kind of a dirty white. Not albino though...

    I'll see if we can get some pics of the herd of piebald on Vandenberg. There is one group kind of isolated and obviously related to each other in a closed area.

    Well, I grew up out in Bella Vista - off of Old Alturas Rd. I've seen a few different piebalds out there... always an even dirty white, or white-blond color. I've also seen one right next to Shasta College. My grandma had one on here property near the corner of Old Alturas Rd. and Old Oregon Trail. The picture posted above was up north of Shasta College. Somewhere, I have a couple fairly crappy pics of twin forkies that were on Shadow Lake Ranch catfish farm (again, Old Alturas Rd.)...

    So I've seen a bunch, but I'm sure they're all related. I've also seen one in the Yolla Bolly wilderness as well as the Trinity Alps wilderness...

    What I HAVEN'T seen is one of the charcoal black color phases that are present in the Warner Mts. Every few years, one or two surface over there. I've seen pics, heard stories, and heard rumors about them, but have yet to see one myself. That would be sweet!

    This pic is really bad, and probably won't show up too well, but we'll try...

    This is one of the white/blonde colored does I saw a few years ago...
