As a lifelong animal lover, the owner of the YouTube channel ChooChoo’s Story is used to interacting with wild critters. But this story of his interaction with a mama deer feels like it came from a children’s book.
Over the years, this Korean man has become famous on the internet for his friendship with the local wild chipmunks. Still, it was clear from the beginning that this deer was unique.
The first time the man met the doe, she was in his garden. He walked up to her, gave her food, took care of her and let her go. But that was not the end of their time together.
One year later, the doe returned, but the compassionate man thought something was different. When the doe returned on a rainy day, he realized what it was. She had two baby deer with her.
One of the babies was particularly curious, exploring the area around her mother. The other hugged her mom’s side. Sadly, one month later, the mom and the curious doe were the only two to return.
Fortunately, the adventurous baby could not have been happier. When the mom and little one visited the man again, the baby deer dashed around the field, secure under the man and the mama deer’s watchful gazes.
But the story of the man and these two deer did not end there. Watch this small family grow up together in this heartwarming video about loss and the ones who keep living.
