The albino deer was spotted along the walking trail of Mondauk Common.
This post comes courtesy of Upper Dublin Patch reader Solomon Mermelstein, who captured three photos of the increasingly-rare albino deer. Mermelstein said that he was walking along the one-mile trail at Mondauk Common, when he observed the albino deer staring back at him. The albino deer was joined by a normal deer shortly after, and the two went on their way. Editor's note: Reader Bob McArthur says "it's not an albino deer, it's called a pie-bald. An albino would be all white with redish eyes. This deer has normal colored eyes & as you can see, light & dark brown patches."
