VIA| Darius, the cameraman, was looking out in his backyard and noticed a whitetail deer giving birth. What he captured next is something extraordinary.
One of the fawns had an injured leg and was unable to keep up with the mother. Eventually, the fawn was left behind and the mother did not return. That’s when Darius took action. “I do not support keeping wild animals as a pets, but this was special situation,” Darius said.
Darius took in the fawn and nursed it back to health. His other animals accepted the fawn into their family. It wasn’t long until the baby deer was ready to be released back into the wild, but Darius wanted to find her mom. He set out to find his mother with the fawn and that’s when I realized the connection they had already had with each other. The fawn followed Darius around.
Darius could have kept the fawn, but he ended up finding its mother. He finds them again a few months later. It’s incredible to see this from beginning to end, so touching.
