VILAS COUNTY -- Wisconsin hunters tell stories about seeing what they call 'a white deer', but the video above is something truly rare: five albino deer all together in one location.

This video, submitted to our sister station WGBA-TV , was taken in Northern Vilas County near Bolder Junction.
 

According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, it is illegal to harvest an albino deer.

However, even as their population continues to dwindle, some have been seen in the Plattville area as recently as 2015.
