Calico Buck? What Incredible Luck!

I got an e-mail the other day from a friend in Florida who asked if I had ever seen a deer like this one, allegedly shot in Wisconsin. It was so beautiful that I pursued the story and found the same photo on a website called http://www.snopes.com/.

It's a cool site that is all about verifying or busting rumors. The page to see the deer story is

http://www.snopes.com/photos/hunting/calicobuck.asp


To make a long story short, the "piebald" deer was shot in Texas. And the hunter was not paid $13,000 by the sporting goods store, Cabelas, to sell it to them to display.


But it makes a good story. And the deer is still striking!


Check out this website sometime. But do it when you have lots of free time! There is some very entertaining stuff there...

Haha! I love snopes. It's especially fun when I have time to kill, which never happens anymore. Great for callin people on bogus emails though.
