Neighbors upset over shooting of albino deer

WARRICK COUNTY, Ind. -- Neighbors in Evansville are outraged after an albino deer was shot in their area.

A 28-year-old hunter shot and killed the deer.

Neighbors are upset not because the deer is rare but because the deer was somewhat of a neighborhood pet.

They named the deer Ebley and neighbors would often take pictures and video of the deer.

Neighbors said hunting him down and leaving him to die was just cruel.

Wildlife officers said killing a white deer is legal in Indiana.

But it is illegal to shoot the deer from a public roadway as the hunter is accused of doing.
