These Guys Saved a Baby Deer – and Now She only Wants Belly Rubs

The construction workers in the video today, were clearing a way for the electric lines when they came across a little fawn. The poor guy was trapped in the fall-path of a tree they were about to trim. The deer was tangled in some thorns and was pretty shaken up when they cut him loose. So they decided to calm him down by rubbing his belly. But you will not be expecting THIS reaction from the deer for sure.

The deer is really happy to be there with his rescuers, and it is pretty clear that he is spoiled by this short encounter. When they found him, one of the guys held him like a baby and rubbed his belly to calm him down. Then he didn’t want to be put down.


Every time the guy tries to put the baby down, he makes the funniest sound in protest, and the guy just keeps holding him and scratching his belly. The poor baby deer followed them around their job site like a lost puppy for about an hour.

Finally, one of the workers noticed a doe watching them from the hillside. They assumed it was his mother, so they carried him about halfway up the hill while she watched attentively. They sat him down, and he ran straight to her, after which the mama and the baby walked off together.
