An incredibly pretty fawn whose mother turned him down soon after birth has finally found peace on a farm in Michigan. The mother didn’t want the fawn because he had some very strange features on his face.
The deer, which is about one and a half weeks old, was born with piebald, which is a very rare disease. Piebald means that an animal’s body has big spots with no color to them. This is not the same as albinism or melanism. The little boy is called Dragon, which sounds very mean because of how cute he is.
This odd fawn was born on a farm called Deer Trucks Junction in Cedar Springs, Michigan. His mother left him soon after birth because he was so different. Luckily, he is doing well now that kind people are taking care of him.
The woman who adopted Dragon said, “In the wild, they are very, very rare.” “Being a piebald comes with a number of health risks, and whitetail deer naturally reject any babies that don’t have a good chance of living.”
Dragons will have a hard time living in the wild, just like pale animals. Animals that have this rare trait are often turned away by their groups, and in the worst cases, they are easy prey because they can’t hide.
Powell said to FOX17 that they have a black nose. People with pink noses need to be careful in the wild because their noses can get sunburned if they don’t have any shade. The white, on the other hand, makes him stand out, so he can’t hide from animals that could hurt him. He also can’t hear or see them coming.
Dragon has given him everything he needs to live a long and happy life on the farm where he lives.
