Scientifically speaking, the white stag is not an albino; it is a red deer with leucism, a genetic pattern that causes its hair and skin to lose its natural color.
White stags hold a place in the mythology of many cultures. The Celtic people considered them to be messengers from the other-world, and that the white stag would appear when one was transgressing a taboo. Arthurian legend states that the creature has a perennial ability to evade capture; and that the pursuit of the animal represents mankind’s spiritual quest.
Mythos aside, they’re majestic animals worth every bit of reverence we can muster.
