A rare white deer has been attracting admirers almost since it was born last year, according to nature buffs and officials at Kensington Metropark near Milford.
“We started seeing her in spring ’17 — I’ve seen her quite a few times,” said Dave Kirbach, deputy director of the Metropark system — officially, the Huron-Clinton Metropark Authority.
“We’re pretty sure she’s a doe. She’s a little small, but this is her first year, and she got through the winter just fine,” Kirbach said Monday.
He said the unusual deer, whose coat is sheer white and which has a pink nose and blue-ish eyes, is one more reason that nature lovers enjoy coming to Kensington Metropark — about 30 miles west of Detroit.
“We’ve got blue herons and a bald eagle nesting out here. It’s really a thrill to see these creatures,” Kirbach said.
