Wow that fawn has some short legs! I have never seen a fawn with legs that short and that big a torso. The shape of its head is also odd looking along with its stride when it shuffles around. Maybe it is the camera angle that is fooling me. Several deer farms up north raise white and piebald genetics. I have seen quite a few of them on farms but only a few ever in the wild. That fawn just doesn't seem like it is a whitetail when I watch the video clip on my little fancy phone screen. It is very cute! Thanks for posting it!

Doesn't seem like a whitetail to me either. Very cool none the less.

Would be interested to know about the parents. We have pieds but always breed them to brown deer, never pied to pied because there can be physiologic issues.

I didn't realize piebald fawns were so commonly deformed. I now guess yours probably is a whitetail fawn. I watched the first QDMA video clip posted with the guy holding the pied and the gal holding the normal colored fawn. This pied also appears to have much shorter legs and parrot jaw.

There is something about this video clip that has ticked me off as I have thought about it today. It was very cruel to have left that pied fawns ankles like that. Surgery and cast should have been put on it at birth. I had a friend in Alabama who had a piebald fawn born with its ankles bent just like this. He responsibly had his DVM do surgery immediately and cast them so the little guy could live a normal life. What are these chuckleheads doing? This fawn is going to have sores and likely get infections his whole life walking on his ankles. Leaving the fawn that way would be stupid and unnecessarily cruel. Furthermore what is the point in having two breeder bucks in the enclosure. I don't see what meaningful data could be gathered breeding with such vague parameters. This looks like more of QDMA's stupidity!!!

The fawn should have been put to sleep instead of videoing a freak show for all to see and make the deer farmer look bad because it was raised in an enclosure!!!!!!

Apparently it wandered up and they took it back in the woods shortly after and the mother came out when it heard it.

I hope they fixed the fawns legs in the Georgia research center video. I would have liked to have heard the coordinator say they planned on doing surgery.

If your state would have allowed I would have kept that fawn. I don't think its legs were long enough to evade predators although it wasn't as bad off as the one at the research center. It would have made a cool pet if it was a doe.

The Dr. John R Fischer that heads up the research center in that QDMA video clip is a socialistic equalitarian idiot. He was on the panel that decided our new CWD standards. He is definitely not for deer farming. This research facility would never use DNA Solutions to find out if the two fawns born from the same doe had different sires. They would rather not find out than use one of our industry resources. Knowing the misleading propaganda of John Fischer' and the QDMA about our industry really got my blood boiling after seeing this clip.
