BOULDER JUNCTION, Wis. (WLUK) -- It's not the first time Tracy Weese has seen this albino buck.

Weese, who said she had seen the buck before, took this picture Sunday of the animal in her backyard in Boulder Junction, Wisconsin.

"His Majesty just strolled through our backyard ??," she wrote on her Facebook page.

She wants him to get the credit he deserves. She said he is an albino, and not a piebald. A piebald or pied animal is one that has a pattern of unpigmented spots on a pigmented background of hair, feathers or scales.

Weese said albino bucks look different when in rut. The brown stain on his hind leg is his tarsal gland that releases his scent. According to Weese, the buck had a brown/blood stained head and antlers because he rubbed his white velvet off on trees.

It is illegal to shoot albino deer in Wisconsin.
