A man witnessed the birth of two baby deer in his backyard and captured the following story of the injured fawn and her recovery on his camera. He rescued the injured fawn and nursed her back to health so that she could go back into the wild strong and healthy.

 

I do not support keeping wild animals as pets, but this was [a] special situation.

 

He noticed that the fawn had an injured leg.

And she was soon left behind by her mother and brother because she couldn’t keep up with them.

 

With so many predators around, she had no chance to survive on her own…

 

He showed footage of bears and wolves lurking around his domain who would have seen the fawn as an easy target.

 

So he decided to bring her home where he introduced her to his own pets. He even made her a makeshift crutch using oatmeal packaging and fed her milk from a bottle every four hours.

She soon started to regain strength and could walk on her own. In higher spirits, she formed a special bond with her "foster father" Mack, the man's dog who was very fond of her.

Soon it was time to set her free into the wild where she could find her family. However, the bond between her and her rescuer was so strong that she kept coming back to him.

Nevertheless, one special evening she was finally reunited with her family.

 

The man then witnessed the fawn a couple of months later with her mother and brother. To this day, he still manages to catch glimpses of her sprinting along with her family all thanks to his aid.
