Rare Piebald Deer on Orcas Island (Washington State) September 4, 2007Posted by Sacha in Genetics, News, Science.
I had the good furtune to see a piebald deer while visiting the Spring Bay Inn on Orcas Island in Washington state a few weeks ago. Isn’t it pretty?
My father-in-law, a geneticist, says it is not a result of inbreeding, as one fellow inn guest had told me, but simply a genetic difference. I am having trouble finding reliable information on this variation. Does anyone have a scientifically sound source of information about it?
