MUKWONAGO, Wis. -- TODAY'S TMJ4 reporter Rikki Mitchell was sent on a mission to find a rare white deer after reports of sightings from three residents.
Mitchell went to Mukwonago to try to see the deer for herself, and decided to stream her search on Facebook Live. After miraculously spotting the creature, she could not contain her excitement.
"Nature is amazing," Mitchell commented on her Facebook page.
From her point of view, Mitchell says the deer had brown eyes, meaning it is not albino. While white deer are unusual, they're not as rare as albino deer that typically have pink eyes.
The Wisconsin DNR says it's illegal to possess or harvest all-white deer or an albino deer.
