It’s not unusual for a lost cat or a dog to end up in someone’s yard, but when it comes to wild animals, we don’t get to witness something like that very often. Well, that is why this story of a baby fawn that wandered into a family’s yard is that special.
The Herrings were getting back home from a canoe trip and were looking forward to taking some rest from the busy and the fun day, but just as they got near their home, they spotted a fawn. The little one was probably lost, and the family expected from it to get scared from them and run away, but to their surprise, just the opposite happened.
The baby deer approached Maya, the family’s little daughter. The sight of the two getting so close and Maya petting the baby was an incredible to witness. We are so glad dad caught everything on tape.
Now, after the little ones had some bonding time together, everyone was aware it was about time for them to try and find the baby’s mother. So Maya and her family headed into the woods while the fawn followed. Finally, the baby found a comfortable place.
Maya’s dad, Brad, got back to the fawn to get it some food and water and the family checked on it the following day. It looked like the baby failed to track its mother, but none lost hope.
A couple of days later, the Herrings spotted a family of deer. A mom, a dad, and two fawns. They were certain one of them was Maya’s friend and they were glad the family was reunited.
Brad thought sharing the video of his daughter and the fawn would bring many smiles at many people, and he was completely right. More than 6.8 million people have seen the unique encounter.
You can take a look at it below. It’s no wonder Maya was dubbed “deer whisperer” after this was filmed.
