A New Mexico Game and Fish officer came upon a rare sight recently.
Officer Tyler Twichell saw a “piebald” deer.
He took a picture near Tierra Amarilla while on patrol.
“Piebald” means having two patches of color and is a result of a rare genetic defect.
Unlike the albino deer, which has pink eyes, a pink nose and pinkish hooves, piebald deer have normal brown pigment.
