Albino (White) Moose in Montana

These pictures were taken just outside of Whitefish, Montana. The cow moose can be seen foraging for food in a thicket with two other moose.

According to fish and wildlife officials, albino moose are rare but not unheard of. Typically, only 1 in 100,000 moose have the ablino trait, which is recessive.

Sightings of albino moose go back for centuries. Some Native American tribes regard these rare animals as spiritual and mystical or even a re-incarnation of a tribe member

  1. I used to live in Columbia Falls, just 8 miles from Whitefish. Beautiful country up there, and sights like this made it fun. But it was far too cold for me for far too long.
