I saw your article on white deer, asking readers to forward pictures. These were taken in Lynwood, Il. on 11/7/12.
CLARENCE, NY (July 24, 2012) - A WGRZ-2 On Your Side viewer sent us this photo of what he thinks are two albino deer.
However, according to Andy Parker, who has become something of an expert on local deer, "the deer is likely not an albino (with red eyes) but rather a "white" deer, which is caused by a genetic mutation of the white-tailed deer. White deer in this area are usually linked to the herd from Seneca, NY."
If you have seen any white deer in your neighborhood leave a comment below, and if you have photos send them to us in an email.
