MILES CITY, Mont. — A doe recently gave birth to triplets — a rare occurrence — including an albino fawn.

The albino fawn, which is also a rare occurrence itself, can be seen in a photo snapped by Tracy Baker and shared by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks on Facebook.

"Only two fawns are visible in the picture, but in the span of a few minutes, the doe had a third fawn, making for a rare batch of triplets," the department wrote.

The department also reminded people to give does and fawns space this time of year, as their best chance of surviving is "in nature, with humans at a safe distance."
