Doe gives birth to triplets, including albino fawn, near Miles City

A doe near Miles City recently gave birth to two rarities in nature: triplets and an albino fawn.

Tracy Baker was traveling between Baker and Miles City on June 12 when she spotted the doe and her newborn fawns.

Montana, Fish Wildlife and Parks called the fawns a “rare batch of triplets.”

FWP officials used the birth to advise the public to avoid contact with young animals. A doe may stash her fawns away so she can feed, however, she rarely abandons her young.
