I think it has a diminished chance of survival, unfortunately. It would be cool if it lasts a few years, though.

Zion? I think I remember hearing about one down that way this summer.

Buck to doe ratio must really be low if you are seeing spotted fawns in Oct. It has to be the DWR's fault.

On a non-sarcastic note-- that is one on the prettiest pics I've seen in some time. Don't see piebald mulies often and that fawn has the best color scheme I have ever seen. Thanks for posting the photo.

Yeah, it was really a pretty deer. The white was just pure snow white. First Piebalt I've ever seen in 70 years. Still to young to tell if it was a buck or doe. It would make a spectacular buck.

Wow that cools, I've never seen anything like that until yesterday when an employee showed me a picture of a moose with the piebald. And now this today, :)

I can imagine some scenarios where that pattern could help him--Summer in the quakies, winter range if it lives in an area with lots of snow. But you're probably right--predators or people will probably cull him from the herd in short order.

It is an amazing picture, BP, thanks for sharing.

Even the deer are wearing camo these days. I can't wait to see on sporting "Muddy girl".
