Baby Deer Refuses To Leave The Human Who Saved Her Life

ADVERTISEMENT

Lithuanian outdoorsman Darius Sasnauskas had a chance to witness a birth of two baby deer in his backyard near the Yellowstone National Park in the US. Unfortunately, one of them was injured and soon left behind by her family because she couldn’t keep up with them.

“With so many predators around, she had no chance to survive on her own,” Darius writes in his video caption. He decided to bring her home. “I do not support keeping wild animals as pets, but this was [a] special situation,” he writes.

After a lot of hard work, the baby deer was healthy again and it was time to set her free. However, the bond between her and Darius was so strong, that she kept coming back to him. Nevertheless, one very special evening she finally reunited with her family.
