Piebald deer

Robert Scharick submitted this photograph of an unusual brown-and-white buck deer he spotted in west The Dalles in mid-July. Such deer are often known as “piebald deer,” and make up about two percent of the population, making them rare, but not as rare as albino deer. The coloring is a recessive trait; it is believed both parents must carry the gene.Contributed photo/Robert Scharick
