Albino fawn rescued by Trucker Near Sacramento (Reports).
A white fawn was rescued by a truck driver in northern California after the rare animal was found sitting in the middle of the road and almost hit by two trucks.
The truck driver, who found the albino fawn on Thursday in Woodland, 29 miles northwest of Sacramento, and initially thought the snowy white animal was a lamb, delivered the animal to a rescue center.
Diane Nicholas at Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue told the Sacramento Bee the 3-week-old fawn’s mother was not located and she is not sure how the deer came to be on the road.
Nicholas said this is the first time the rescue center had treated an albino.
“Albinism in deer is not very common so it is not surprising that we have not had one come in before,” the center said in a Facebook post.
The center has named the fawn Spirit, also known as Ms. Brown.
