Aiming for the albino

While a hunter in Indiana happened to trap an albino raccoon this month, a hunter in Missouri deliberately took aim at an animal that for years had been a sort of local mascot. Others had avoided taking down the albino buck in the past, but this guy shot it with a bow and arrow on private land just north of Cape Girardeau. After the kill, Jerry Kinnaman (IMAGE ABOVE) commented, "I'm sure this is gonna stir some people up." And it did. In an attempt to appease them, he donated the deer's meat, but plans to have its body mounted and possibly put it up for sale, rather then keep it as a trophy. Kinnaman has no regrets: "This is the oldest and most unique deer I'll probably ever take. This is the buck of a lifetime."
