A Deer of a Different Color

This deer frequented our back woods when we first moved into the neighborhood. On catching sight of it, we weren’t sure what it actually was until it raised its head and looked at us. We had only caught sight of its tail and sides and then realized it was a deer. In searching online I believe (correct me if I am wrong) this is called a piebald deer.

Several of our other neighbors have noticed it before as well and we’re all quite protective of it and the other deer that roam our new neighborhood. We fear that local hunters will hunt it only for the fact that it is different and we are concerned no one has seen it in a very long while. Unfortunately, hunting is allowed within a very uncomfortable distance of our homes and thus the deer. Hopefully we will see it again someday soon; if we’re lucky, we may see a fawn or two in the spring perhaps.
