Wild Deer Walks Towards Woman Last Thing She Expects Is A Move She’ll Never Forget
There are some moments in life where we could all use a little break. Things are hectic at work, chaotic at home and it seems as though there’s no escape from the stress of day-to-day life. Due to these insane circumstances, the thought of finding somewhere nice and warm, curling up in a safe place and falling asleep is more appealing than many of us would like to admit! That yearning for a quick catnap is precisely what this sweet doe felt when she spotted a kindhearted woman sitting peacefully outside her Alabaster, Alabama, home! Instead of running away, as most deer do, the doe wandered closer and closer to the woman until its head was resting happily on her lap.
While this deer is clearly a friendly creature, the Wildlife Animal Control website says that you should always be careful when approaching a deer. These animals often weigh more than the humans they encounter and can cause severe injuries if startled. In addition to the size concern, the website also explains that deer in herd pose the threat of stampeding. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye out when walking in heavily wooded areas and always give deer a wide berth when you spot one in the wild.
Thankfully, this woman knew to remain calm when the doe got close. Moving slowly, the woman grabbed her camera and began to record their incredible interaction. As if things couldn’t get any cooler, the deer took several steps closer to the woman and actually rested its head on her! Take a peek at the pair’s sweet cuddle session in the video below. It’s not every day you see a deer snuggle up to a someone in camouflage!
