    I am sad for the the little one that did not make it, So Sorry. Wonder if the fact they live on Aberdeen Proving ground has caused the 2 to be white or miss colored. (military technology are experimented or tested) Could be ya know. :-(

    I think the piebald condition happens because of the large deer population on Aberdeen Proving Ground and not happen because of testing.

    "A genetic variation (defect) produces the piebald condition in white-tailed deer, not parasites or diseases. Piebald deer are colored white and brown similar to a pinto pony. Sometimes they appear almost entirely white. In addition to this coloration, many have some of the following observable conditions: bowing of the nose (Roman nose); short legs; arching spine (scoliosis); short lower jaws. This genetic condition is rare with typically less than one percent of white-tailed deer being affected." Retrieved from http://www.dnr.state.md.us/wildlife/Hunt_Trap/deer/disease/ddpbald.asp
