Albino Deer Slayer Claims Toothless Buck Already a Goner

A Missouri hunter who killed an albino deer popular with the locals  has been slammed on social media, but Jerry Kinnaman said on Facebook that the aging buck would not have survived the winter.

The Southeast Missourian reported that the large white albino deer had become somewhat of a celebrity in the Cape Girardeau area for its rare white coat, leading to other hunters to let it be during past deer seasons.

Kinnaman told the newspaper that he had even passed on killing the deer in the past at the request of the friend.

"I had a friend who let me hunt on his land a few years ago and I asked him, 'Would you be offended if I shot this deer?' and he said yes because it was so beautiful, you know?" Kinnaman told the newspaper.

He said, though, the friend eventually changed his mind because of the popularity of the animal.

"He had people trespassing on his land [to see the deer] and it was getting to be too much of a hassle," Kinnaman said. "It got so bad that he came back to me and said, 'I want you to shoot this deer.'"

News that Kinnaman had killed the deer with a bow and arrow this week attracted the ire of people on the hunter's Facebook page and on Twitter.


Kinnaman said on Facebook that after examining the deer, it was apparent the animal had reached the age where it likely would not have survived the winter because it was frail and had no teeth.

"After completely cleaning this animal I can tell you he had no fat on him for winter," Kinnaman posted. "He was extremely skinny. He had been shot before. And his teeth were almost gone. … He would have died painfully this winter."
