RARE WHITE REINDEER CALF SPOTTED ON CAMERA

Oslo, Norway - Dec 5 A Norwegian photographer has shared images of a rare white reindeer calf he encountered while hiking with friends Tuesday. Mads Nordsveen, 24, from Oslo, said he spotted the animal in the snow on a walk in northern Norway. White reindeers are considered very rare. In 2016 a white stag was spotted on a road side in Mala, in northern Sweden. Their unusual appearance is caused by a genetic condition that strips the pigment from their fur, but not albinism. According to some Scandinavian traditions, spotting a white reindeer is considered a sign of good luck. Photo of courtesy of Mads Nordsveen / Instagram
