The Seneca Depot deer are not albino - they have normal brown-colored eyes and outside of the white coats are otherwise as healthy as the site's brown deer, although some of the white bucks display a flattening or palmation of their antlers, according to Linda J. Vera with the Department of Environmental Conservation, New York's equivalent of the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

DEC Region 8 spokeswoman Linda Vera said deep soil samples are complete and the first phase of surface samples have been gathered at residential properties in an area believed to be near a former manufacturing waste dump.
Vera also said soil has been tested at 11 properties outside the originally defined area of the study.
Those tests were done in response to reports from residents of materials on their properties, she said.
"While the limits of the Study Area have not been modified at this time, DEC has evaluated for the presence of fill containing ash, brick, or glass in shallow soils at some properties outside the limits of the Study Area where it has been reported to us," Vera said in an email to The Leader.
The tests outside the study area were only shallow soil samples and not deep soil borings, she said.
In the study area, about 150 private properties have been tested for materials that may have come from glass and other manufacturing waste.
That doesn't include the additional 11 sites sampled, Vera said.
