The image of a deer rescuing her baby, that has become afraid and stuck in the middle of the road, is immensely moving.
A driver witnessed the incident and was able to record it on his phone,
which he subsequently posted on his Facebook page, where it went viral. At
the time, Jessie Larson was driving down Washington’s Port Orchard
Highway when she stumbled across the animal.
The mother initially believed the deer was in danger and was about to go outside to assist the baby. However, she saw her mother arrive after only a few moments and began capturing the scenario she was observing.
Mom approached the fawn with caution since it was terrified. When Jessie saw the deer, she instantly shut off the car engine so the animals wouldn’t be startled. Then something remarkable happened: the mother tenderly caressed her baby, that had been puzzled. And she succeeded: the little deer quickly climbed to its feet and followed its mother.
Jessie followed them with her eyes for a long time, surprised at her mother’s sensitivity to animals and affection for her babies.
