That's pretty cool - they certain are not a common occurrence.

 

I've never seen one.

 

Was it a Buck ?

Piebald is the result of a genetic mutation, and they need to be removed from the herd. They are not the result if an albino breeding with a regular colored deer, as many believe. Left unchecked in a herd the mutation retards antler growth and body size, the final result before a huge die off, is deer that resemble domesticated goats in size and antler formation. The kill should be reported to the dnr biologist

Used to be a piebald doe that lived in the middle of the city that I lived in. She'd eat grass with the rest of the herd off the side of the road, I'd see her a few times every year. I think she finally died of old age as I haven't seen her for quite awhile now. One of the local officer's said that one of her offspring is a really nice 10 point piebald buck though, I'd like to see that! I tried to get a picture of her once but the low light made it turn out awful.
