Default Albino bear shot in PA

Would you have shot this? It was an albino bear shot in PA. It only weighed 47lbs! I am trying to find a picture on the net.

Personally I would have let it walk, but if it was legal I guess there's nothing against it.

That's a small cub and the mother ought to be close by still. I passed on bears three times it size and the albino part does make interesting but not that size. It would be fun to watch walk away.

If it is a sow or female just watch it grow up because it will not go to far from home. If it's a boar say good bye and good luck because once it's 100 lbs or larger it will look huge compared to a similar black colored bear and somebody will take a shot for sure.
