Cute toddler gets ‘more than he bargained for’ when he befriends deer
He was just trying to water his garden, but the deer had another plan in mind.

It’s always interesting to see how different animals from the same species respond to humans. Take deer, for instance. Some deer will run away at the first signs of a human. But others are a bit more curious about these two-legged creatures.

The deer in this video falls into the latter camp.

If you try to get near a deer and befriend one at this moment, you never know exactly how they’ll respond.

Deers are wild animals and they are most likely afraid of interacting with humans. We see them around America, usually frolicking in the woods and sometimes reaching neighborhoods near forests. However, human interaction is something that we rarely witness these animals do.

Now, imagine a little kid getting near a baby deer. How will this encounter end?

One little boy was caught on camera as he tried to get near the fawn who was roaming around their neighborhood.

Actually, the toddler seems to be more interested in grabbing the green watering bucket beside the little deer, but somehow he ended up getting a close meeting with the wild animal. At first, the young deer was only watching the tiny human as he approached her.

The toddler reached for the green watering bucket, and before he can really grab it, the baby deer instantly reaches out and gave the boy a sweet kiss!

The little guy was taken aback by the sudden lick from the fawn that he took a few steps away from the animal. He was not able to get the bucket, but he was not ready to give up just yet.

He reluctantly held onto his ear that was just licked and proceeded to get closer to the fawn once more to get the bucket.

He held the baby deer’s face in his teeny tiny hands, trying to stop her from licking him again. The boy is truly trying his best to get hold of the bucket, but the deer just wouldn’t let him.

“Whoah!”

These two babies make the most hilarious duo!

Now, the toddler is really intent on taking the bucket that he just let the sweet deer lick his ears as he picked it up.

What a sweet encounter indeed! Finally, the boy held and lifted the bucket! Only to let it go because – you guessed it – the deer was just licking him non-stop. She seems to be really fond of the little boy!

“Naughty!”

We may not be used to seeing deers and children being this sweet to each other, but we can’t deny that this friendly encounter is a breath of fresh air.

It is unusual and really cute, leaving us all in awe of the possibilities of interacting with wild animals out there. Although it is not generally safe to just interact with wild deers like this young one, at least this adorable clip proved that it is not impossible to befriend them.

It’s so wonderful to watch this sweet interaction between two babies from different species. We hope the deer comes back to visit the little boy again!
