White deer spotted several times near Elberfeld
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The Stout family near Elberfeld has sent us several pictures of a white deer, that could be albino.
Ruth Stout says they’ve seen her three times in the last three weeks.
Experts say seeing a white or albino deer is extremely rare.
They estimate one in every 20,000 deer is white.
An albino deer is even rarer.
The difference between a white deer and an albino is in the eyes and hooves. Albino deer will have pinkish eyes and hooves, not dark ones.
In 2018, a hunter in Dubois County also spotted an all white deer.
