A rare albino fawn was rescued by a truck driver in northern California on Friday after she was found sitting in the middle of the road and nearly hit by two trucks.
The white fawn was found in Woodland, located in the northwest section of Sacramento. The truck driver initially thought, because of the color of her coat, the animal was a lamb. The mother of the fawn has not been found, and it is not known how the little one happened to be in the middle of the road.
“Today was a new experience for all of us at KSFR. We got in an albino fawn, albinism in deer is not very common so it is not surprising that we have not had one come in before.
Meet Spirit aka Ms. Brown, she is a 3 week old fawn that came in after almost being hit by two trucks. The finder said he thought she was a lamb at first because of her snowy white coat!”
According to Diane Nicholas at the rescue, the fawn is about three-weeks-old, and this is the first albino fawn the rescue has ever seen.
Meet Spirit – also known as Ms. Brown. The rescue is hoping Spirit will be able to be released back into the forest. As reported, Spirits’s vision and hearing are fine.
Many thanks to the truck driver for rescuing this little cutie.
