Thanks for sharing your photo with MLive readers, Alicia.

  2. Jody P. says:

    let her live!!

  3. V.H. Duncan says:

    This is a lovely sight of a piebald deer in Arkansas!

  4. Dale says:

    It’s actually call Pie Bald, its seen more in horses.

  5. MyAuntLulu says:

    A piebald is an animal, usually a horse, that has a spotting pattern of large white and black patches. The colour of the horse’s skin underneath its coat may vary between black (under the black patches of hair) and pink (under the white patches). The colouring is generally asymmetrical. Many animals also exhibit coloration of the irises of the eye that match the surrounding skin. This condition also occurs in white-tailed deer.

    A genetic variation (defect) produces the piebald condition in white-tailed deer, not parasites or diseases. Piebald deer are colored white and brown similar to a pinto pony. Sometimes they appear almost entirely white. In addition to this coloration, many have some of the following observable conditions: bowing of the nose (Roman nose), short legs, arching spine (scoliosis), and short lower jaws. This genetic condition is rare with typically less than one percent of white-tailed deer being affected.

  6. MyAuntLulu says:

    They have many of these in the Seark area, especially around Star City.

  7. H.Unter says:

    If it’s a genetic disorder, shouldn’t they be culled?

  8. Don't shoot says:

    I get the joy of seeing this deer almost every morning on my drive to work.

  9. Well.... says:

    It is pretty, but with all the hunting around here, I hate to agree, but if it is genetic, it needs to be culled. Poor thing.
