World Rarest White-faced Fawn, Rejected By Mother, Finds New Life

A rare white-faced fawn has found a loving home at a Michigan animal farm after being rejected by his mother after birth, reported. The baby deer, named Dragon, is just a week and a half old and is as adorable as his name is fierce. Dragon was born at Deer Tracks Junction, an animal farm in Cedar Springs, Michigan, according to Fox 17.

The farm’s owner and the fawn’s human surrogate mom, Hilary Powell, explained to the news outlet that Dragon was abandoned by his mother, likely because he was born with a white face that would make it difficult for him to survive in the wild. “In the wild, they are very, very rare,” Powell said of Dragon’s species.

The fawn’s mother, a doe named Bunny, is a whitetail Piebald deer. Born with bright blue eyes and a pink nose, Dragon was disowned after birth probably because he didn’t look like the other fawns, Powell told “Normally they have a black nose,” Powell said to Fox 17.

“[A pink nose is] actually a detriment in the wild, because if they don’t have shade, their nose is very sensitive to the sun and can get sunburn.”

But little Dragon is being cared for with lots of love now. Powell and her family will continue to feed the little guy with a bottle until he’s ready to meet farm visitors and join in on the deer games.
