What are your thoughts on this?  I never realized this was such an issue.

INDIAN RIVER -- John Ingersoll had no idea that shooting a rare "piebald" deer would lead to years of battles with state wildlife officials and some of his neighbors

Hold on... If the deer's eyes were brown, it wasn't a true albino, regardless of whether it was all white or not.

I agree with him that the two officers who stated it WAS an albino should be smacked around a bit by the courts. Then the guy needs to smack his lawyer around for not pointing out this point. As far as I know, an albino will always be an albino. Am I wrong? ???

We can shoot piebald deer here in Wisconsin... but most people let them go just cuz ya don't see one very often.
We must remember that one determined person can make a significant difference, and that a small group of determined people can change the coarse of history.

I don't understand stand why you would want to protect a mutation?  You don't want it to  breed.  Dumb  I know around here we use to have a albino bear.  That bear was protected and worshipped by the Indians.  Some city guy shot it and ended up in hot water.

The article said that albinos and other "all white" deer are protected.  I take this to mean that if a deer is all white, but has brown eyes, it's protected.  In that case, the deer would be considered a piebald.

As others have said, it's a genetic mutation.  It's not something that is desired in nature.  The albanism and piebald genes are recessive and are generally not exhibited.  They are rare, but still a mutation nonetheless.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Its a tough law to enforce a true albino has pink eyes . I feel he is more than fair killing it with or without the stain . In my opinion it was a piebald . He also took the time and effort and respect to have a full mount done . I hate the guy had to go through all the hassle
