The man who shot the video, Dan Mortenson, told Minneapolis station WCCO that he spotted the rare deer while driving in the area of Middle McKenzie Lake, in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

Mortenson said he spoke to people in the area who said the deer is about ten years old and they called it a local treasure.

In Wisconsin, it is illegal to posses an albino or all-white deer.
