CHEATHAM COUNTY, Tenn. — It may not be a white Christmas -- but what about a white deer?

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency posted a video Saturday of a rare sighting: a snow-white albino deer. 

TWRA said one of its Facebook followers, Andy Warrick, caught the deer on video. The video shows a white deer moving through a sunny forest in Cheatham County. 

According to the agency's website, the albino deer is protected under Tennessee law -- it's illegal to hunt, trap or possess the rare animal.
