In September 2019, a Pittsburgh area man named Thomas Daniels and his wife were sitting on their porch when they spotted a rare albino deer.
Neither of them had a camera or their phones on them so they couldn’t document the sighting.
Tuesday (Sep 24), as luck would have it, the albino deer returned! This time, Daniels acted fast enough that he was able to capture some video of the beautiful, and rare, creature.
ABSOLUTELY STUNNING: For the second time in a month, a rare albino deer was spotted outside of #Pittsburgh. This time the beautiful creature was captured on video. https://t.co/JHl6yFACJc pic.twitter.com/FDdSwLm7C8

Wildlife biologist Fayln Owens says the odds of seeing an albino deer are 1 in 30,000. Although those odds aren’t great, a few people across the country have spotted one or more recently!
A woman in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin saw three at once the other day!
