I have never seen one, but a few years ago a friend of mine had 5 or so "black" deer around his farm during the summer. It turns out they were not melanistic, but had gotten loose from an enclosure in the area and were some other sub-species.

I think I remember him saying that the DNR advised him and other neighbors to shoot them on sight, as they were not a native animal. I think my friend shot one or two and another neighbor got the others.
