A Wisconsin man captured three albino deer on camera—an incredibly rare feat.

The moment was captured more than a week ago.

The man filmed the footage somewhere in northern Wisconsin.

One out of every 20,000 deer is albino. It’s illegal to hunt one of the animals, as they’re so rare.

In 2014, an 11-year-old boy, Gavin Dingman, shot and killed an albino deer in Michigan. As a result, he got online death threats, according to Realtree.com.

“I’ve had people tell me, ‘You should have taken the shot. You don’t let an 11-year-old take a shot at a deer like that,’ ” his father said at the time. “To me, in my opinion, it doesn’t matter if it’s a spike or a doe or a trophy deer. If you have confidence in them, it shouldn’t matter what they are shooting at.”
