You don't see them often, and it is even more rare to see them roaming around in a city but a very unusual animal was spotted in Downtown Buffalo.

According to this Twitter post, an Albino Deer was seen walking around Downtown Buffalo.


We are not sure if this is the same Albino deer that the West Seneca police spotted about 7 months ago. They were able to grab some photos of that deer.

Albino animals are rare but this isn't the first time an albino animal has been spotted here in Western New York. It was just a couple of weeks ago that an Albino squirrel was spotted in the Village of Hamburg.

Seeing an albino animal is very rare. On average albinism in wildlife is anywhere between 1 in 20,000 to 1 in 1 million depending on the animals.


Animals become albino when they lack pigmentation and have completely white hide and pink eyes, noses, and hooves. Ablism happens around one in every 30,000 deer so seeing one in Downtown Buffalo is very rare.
