Has anybody seen anything like this in a red deer before?
We met him roaring away this weekend. Never been seen before. Apparently a flecked hind was shot in the area five years ago. I know there are reports of this in roe. Is it genetic, are they born this way (if so I would be surprised if it hadn't been spotted before), can it occur and throw a normal coat the next year? I have heard of a hand reared fox with a white coat that grew a normal coat the following year.
