A beautiful and rare piebald fawn has found a new home at a Michigan deer farm after being abandoned by it’s mother.
Fewer than 1 percent of whitetail deer are born piebalds and even fewer survive to adulthood.
Deer Track’s owner, explains to WZZM, some of the issue piebalds face in the wild.
“It’s beautiful, but it’s a sign of other problems it might have,” said Deer Tracks Junction owner Kelly Powell. “A piebald deer is the same as any other whitetail deer; it’s just lacking pigment and pigment doesn’t just affect your skin color, it effects your eyesight, hearing, kidney functions.”
