Abandoned Fawn Is Rescued, Nursed Back to Health, and Reunited With Mother
Lifestyle| | By Jason Owen
Thanks to the patience and determination of one man, a baby deer was given the chance at a happy life after it was abandoned and nursed back to health.
YouTube user, Honeysada, uploaded a video, “Baby deer rescue and release,” where he details an encounter between himself, a deer doe, and her twin fawns. One of the fawns is injured and abandoned, leaving Honeysada in a tight position.
From the video page:
“A deer doe abandoned one of her twin fawns, the fawn had injured leg and could not keep up with the mother.
I do not support keeping wild animals as a pets, but this was special situation. The baby deer was healed and released back to her real mother.
Update: The doe and two her fawns [are] still around, we seen them through the summer and the autumn. [sic]
“I am thankful for every single person who liked, shared and left a comment. I didn’t expect this story to become so popular. I am sure that any of us with a little bit of a conscience about our existence, with love for the nature and animals would do the same.”
The incredible, heartwarming video shows how Honeysada came across the deer, nursed it back to health (with the help of his two lovable dogs – and the cat), and eventually reunited the fawn with her mom.
This is the fawn limping behind her mom and sibling.
It was shortly after this that Honeysada realized the fawn could no longer keep up with her family and she was left behind.
With dangerous predators around, he knew the fawn could not be left to fend for herself.
As Honeysada said, “This was a special situation,” and the fawn needed care. So, naturally, that’s what he did.
The next morning, the cat was still getting used to their new roommate.
The fawn received a little brace to help her leg heal.
The dogs warmed up to her quickly.
And didn’t seem to mind when the fawn got a treat.
Once the fawn was healthy enough, Honeysada took her out to the pasture to reunite her with her mom and sister. (Maybe she would have been happy to stay though?)
Eventually, the fawn did find her mom and the three of them couldn’t be happier.
