While travelling between rice fields in Yolo County, Calif., a truck driver swerved to avoid a little white mound in the middle of the road. The driver kept going, but when he saw another truck veer behind him, he decided to turn around and investigate.

He discovered that the mound was really an animal - maybe a lamb or some kind of goat, he thought. Then he heard it mew, like a cat, and he called the Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue centre.

Rare albino panda caught on camera in China: state media

Rare albino panda caught on camera in China: state media A rare all-white panda has been caught on camera at a nature reserve in southwest China, showing albinism exists among wild pandas in the region, state media reported. 

While traveling between rice fields in Yolo County, Calif ., a truck driver swerved to avoid a little white mound in the middle of the road . The driver kept going, but when he saw another truck veer behind him, he decided to turn around.

While traveling between rice fields in Yolo County, Calif ., a truck driver swerved to avoid a little white mound in the middle of the road . After the driver texted photographs of the small creature, Nicholas realized what he had found. "I said, 'Oh, my gosh, that's an albino fawn !'"

After the driver texted photographs of the small creature, Nicholas realized what he had found. "I said, 'Oh, my gosh, that's an albino fawn!'"

It's the first such animal Nicholas has cared for in 13 years as a rescuer.

The animal is a surreal sight, with white hooves, red eyes and super-soft, short fur Nicholas likened to a Labrador retriever's - unlike the different textures of spotted deer fur.

Because the animal was found in a flat area, with no signs of shelter or its mother, Kindred Spirits took in the baby. Nicholas said the mother deer could be roadkill, and the fawn may have wandered out to the road to find her.

The rescue centre named the 3-week-old female "Spirit" because of a Native American folklore linked to white deer. Rescuers sprayed animal-friendly sunscreen on the albino baby to protect her sensitive skin and soft, white coat, and built a dark shelter for her.

While travelling between rice fields in Yolo County, Calif ., a truck driver swerved to avoid a little white mound in the middle of the road . It made headlines in May 1980 when it erupted, blowing more than 1,000 feet (304.8 meters) from the top of the mountain and killing 57 people.

Middle of the Road is a Scottish pop group who have enjoyed success across Europe and Latin America since the 1970s. Before ABBA established themselves in the mid 70s, Middle of the Road were the sound of early europop with their distinctive harmonies and lead vocals from Sally Carr.

When Spirit was brought in early last week, the fawn was afraid and rejected bottles, Nicholas said. But she since has gained confidence and drinks from her bottle heartily - though sometimes she struggles with where to put her long, white tongue.

"It was so cute - this morning she finished her bottle ... she stood on her hind legs and swatted her hoof by the bottle," Nicholas said.

In about a week's time, she will get a roommate - another rescued deer - and then be moved in with a larger group. She'll be released with a group of deer when she's about 6 months old, Nicholas said.

The rescue centre has been flooded with messages from concerned citizens who worry about the deer's release.

But Nicholas said Spirit's chance of survival is about the same as that of other deer, despite the fact that she can't camouflage very well. The animal will be released on private property owned by ranchers, where hunting is prohibited.

A truck driver had quite an unusual day when he not only spotted a rare albino fawn but was also able to save its life. The truck driver saw the fawn sitting in the middle of the road and was startled when he saw that it was almost hit by two other trucks . At first, he thought the white animal was a lamb.

Middle of the Road . During the past decade or so we have been relying on our Facebook Pages to keep everyone up to date with the group’s activities and we intend to keep that going.

"She is a special gift to us," Nicholas said. "We're giving her the best shot possible."
