Wоman sееs dееr mоm rеjесting ‘rarе’ whitе-faсеd fawn and jumρs in tо raisе him hеrsеIf

We humans know that everyone is different, and those differences make us special and unique.

They’re something to be proud of.

But in the case of animals, being different from the rest can sometimes make you an outcast.

When Dragon, a white-faced fawn, was born, his mom knew that something wasn’t right.

Animals aren’t as clever as us. Perhaps Dragon’s mom saw his differences and interpreted them to mean that he’d be weak, had a deformity, and wouldn’t sưrvivе.

For whatever reason, she rеjесted her fawn, and focused on her other babies.

Poor Dragon was left to fend for himself in the wild.

Dragon’s uniqueness has a name – it’s known as “piebald”.

According to Hilary Powell of Deer Tracks Junction in Cedar Springs, Missouri, when an animal is piebald, it has patches on its body with no pigmentation.

In Dragon’s case, his pigmentation is obvious – his entire face is white. It gives him a strikingly beautiful appearance, but it obviously didn’t sit right with his mom.

There may be a reason behind Dragon’s mom’s rеjесtion, as Hilary explains:

“The white makes him stand out so he can’t hide from predators, and he can’t hear or see as well as a regular deer, so he can’t hear or see predators coming.”

Thankfully, Dragon was rеscuеd from the wild, so he now has a second chance at life.
