Wild animals venturing near a human is something scarce. However, this is common in a protected forest north of Peterborough, Ontario. Deer thrive in the area and feel secure since there are few predators, and hunting deer is prohibited there.
These wild deer have become used to humans visiting them in the forest. These humans mostly stay in the area and often go to the forest. Deer often wander close to these humans and observe them curiously from nearby.
This close interaction between humans and deer has been going on for ages in this forest. Since it is a protected area, wild animals do not feel threatened by visiting humans. However, if you wait long enough in the woods, you will witness deer wandering around you.
Recently, a man was found sitting on a log eating apples inside a protected forest in Ontario. While he enjoys an apple, a deer comes near the man. The doe runs up to the man and stands at a distance expecting something from the human.
The man watches the deer without moving an inch, fearing that his movement might frighten the animal away. Carefully, the doe walks closer to the man, sniffing at the grass-filled ground all the time for something to eat.
The man suddenly takes a bite of the apple, which attracts the doe’s attention. The animals watch him expectantly. Finally, the man stretches his arm towards the doe holding the piece of apple. After some time, the doe walks further away from the human.
This prompts the man to throw the remains of the apple toward the doe. The animal looks around the grass-filled area for the apple piece while the man keeps on watching the animal.
