A rare white albino deer was spotted in Ohio Township, Pennsylvania over the weekend. 

A viewer snapped a photo of the deer near a bird feeder and sent it to local news station KDKA. Another albino deer was spotted near Pittsburgh in September. 

According to Mossy Oak, 1 in every 30,000 deer in the wild are albino and the creatures are increasingly rare because they are more visible to predators and are often born with physical deformities such as arched spines, deformed hooves, shortened jaws and short legs.

The biggest improvements are expected for Asia where population growth is slowing and household incomes are rising.
