The state Department of Natural Resources says the hunter who mistakenly shot the white deer contacted authorities after learning he had killed the protected animal in Pepin County. The DNR says the hunter was given a warning at the time the buck was confiscated.
Even though the deer's head was partly brown, conservation warden Richard Rosen says it was still protected.
WEAU-TV reports that after the meat is processed and donated to a pantry in Mondovi, the local conservation club will do a full body mount and display the deer at its clubhouse for use in its hunter safety program.
