Outrage in Wisconsin after hunter LEGALLY kills rare white buck breaking town’s truce

An out-of-town hunter broke an unspoken agreement by killing a rare white deer in Sauk County, Wisconsin, this week, leaving a town divided over the whether the beautiful animals should be protected.

There was nothing illegal about Saturday’s shooting in Leland, about 15 miles northwest of Sauk City. White and albino deer aren’t protected in chronic-wasting-disease zones, and this deer was not even a true albino because it had a dark spot on its hindquarters.

But the area only has about eight white and albino deer, and even though the town is full of avid hunters the residents have formed a truce to keep them safe. So when a hunter bagged a white buck Saturday, some townspeople reacted with anger and dismay.

    Where is the outrage about abortion? The kids aborted come in all kinds of colors.

      Who cares.

    Come on, it’s a genetic freak, a mutation. There’s nothing special about this deer other than the fact that it never produced pigment to give it a normal color. Personally, I feel that there is no reason why albino or white deer are protected…

      Its’ not protected, it is an oddity but it’s their oddity. The towns people probably enjoyed seeing it roaming around. And then an outsider comes along and kills it, I would be pissed too.

        How is an outsider to know about this so-called truce? Besides, it’s a deer. What else are you supposed to do with ’em?

  • USMCBLACKOPS

    1st the article was NOT ABOUT ABORTION OR KILLING BABIES .!!! the fact that a area has a unique animal in it’s midst should be protected,before they are extinct as so many other special animals have become. “TAKE YOUR CONCERNS TO YOUR POLITICANS AND YOUR PRESIDENT (ON ABORTION)”

      1st ammendment?
      and I care. Human life is more valuable than any animal.
      We are all created in the image of God and have inherent dignity.

      Way to censor those who don’t agree with you.

      An albino deer isn’t a species that can go extinct because they are mutations not stand alone species. Albino animals are actually detremental to the parent species because the mutation gets passed and future generation will be unable to camoflague themselves from predators/prey (which ever their coloration is designed to do). I do know that most native american’s consider them sacred so if I were hunting on tribal land I would respect their culture but public land they are just as fair game and any other deer.

    I guess that hunter just didn’t give a buck. Sorry, couldn’t help myself, had to say it.
