Being as there are PLENTY of deer around, I hope hunters have enough sense to leave THIS one alone!

Yes, I saw this deer or one of it's family about 2 years ago. I had just left work around 9pm and headed up Blackburn road to I-79. It was climbing up a hill and I thought I was delusional...never knew there was such a thing as a white deer. There was no traffic behind me so I got to stay still while watching the deer. Told my story to just about everyone I know.
