White deer: Chicago’s south suburbs, again

SHARE White deer: Chicago’s south suburbs, again

Has the same white deer in this video, taken last winter, been spotted nearby in the south suburbs? Or is it a different one?

Muskie Ron sent this question:

.the other morning while driving to work thru sweet woods in thornton i saw four deer. one of them was solid white. what kind of deer is this.

I tried a couple times to see the white deer that have been spotted in that rough area for years. The first I heard of was the one see often off Glenwood-Dyer Road, but it was killed or died a few years ago.

Then on Jan. 7, I posted this entry:

It looks like there’s an albino buck around Chicago Heights. To see the YouTube video, click here. Jacqueline J. Agee sent the link with this explanation: On Christmas day my family was blessed to see a white deer in Chicago Heights. We were able to video tape it. My brother, John Bennett, is such a fan of yours that he insisted that I get the video to you. After many tries I eventually just uploaded it to my youtube account. . . . We saw it on the boarder of Glenwood and Chicago Heights.

I looked on a map and have a pretty good ground sense of that part of the south suburbs, so my suspicion is that it is the same deer in Agee’s video.

If anybody has some insight, both Muskie Ron and I would appreciate hearing it.
