AND WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT OF DEER: Rare white-faced deer rejected by mom!
It might be a few days before Dragon can meet visitors.

But the white-faced baby deer has somewhat of a sad story: Because of his piebald face, he was rejected by his mother, leaving the owners of Deer Tracks Junction in Cedar Springs, Michigan, to care for the animal.
The 2-week-old deer, who was born at the farm, is named “Dragon,” and has learned to prance and frolic like other young deer at the educational and tourism facility.
Piebald deer, which boast this type of odd coloration, are rare in captivity and extremely rare in the wild.
“Normally they have a black nose,” Hillary Powell, owner of Deer Tracks Junction, told WXMI. “It’s actually a detriment in the wild because if they don’t have shade, their nose is very sensitive to the sun and can get sun burn.”
It’s more of a detriment because they lack the appropriate camouflage to hide from predators.
This helps to explain why Dragon’s mother disowned the fawn hours after he was born—because her natural instinct demands that she be able to hide from predators in order to survive.
But Dragon is fortunate to have Powell as his surrogate mother.
Deer Tracks Junction opened to the public on Wednesday, but Powell, who has been feeding Dragon and giving him vitamins, said it might be several days before is ready to be placed on public display.

Godzilla granted citizenship in Japan, appointed tourism ambassador!
The King of Monsters is finally an official citizen of Japan.
Godzilla, 61, is now an honorary resident of Shinjuku, Tokyo, and has been appointed the tourism ambassador for the district, following an official ceremony. The fictional beast has lived in the country for more than half a century and was honored during a ceremony by Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward earlier this year, according to Anime News Network. Godzilla’s paperwork for citizenship was just finalized last week.
According to the monster’s new residency papers, Godzilla’s duties include “promoting the entertainment of and watching over the Kabuki-cho neighborhood and drawing visitors from around the globe in the form of the Godzilla head built atop the Shinjuku TOHO Building.”
“Godzilla is a character that is the pride of Japan,” said Shinjuku Mayor Kenichi Yoshizumi.
Godzilla was granted official residency on his birthday, April 9, which coincides with the release of the very first Godzilla film 61 years ago in 1954.
Make us proud, Godzilla!
