California trucker rescues rare albino fawn from road

LOOMIS, Calif. — A rare, all-white fawn has been found and rescued in Northern California by a truck driver who delivered the animal to a rescue center.

The small albino deer with a pink nose and large pinkish ears was discovered sitting in the middle of a road in Woodland, near Sacramento.

Diane Nicholas at Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue said the 3-week-old fawn’s mother was not found.

She’s not sure how the fawn happened to be in the road but said that female deer looking for food often leave fawns on their own.

Nicholas said this is the first time she has treated an albino deer during 13 years operating the rescue and rehabilitation center where volunteers treat 50 to 80 fawns per year.
