When a man stepped in to save a fawn from being eaten by predators - he didn't realise the special bond that would soon form between them.
An adorable video has captured the story of a man who rescued a lame baby deer when she was abandoned by her mother and left in a field for predators. Deer stalker Darius spotted the fawn struggling to keep up with her family after something seemed to be wrong with one of her front legs. Eventually, the baby deer was forced to give up walking and collapsed into a heap on the grass.
But when Darius attempted to release her back to her family, the baby deer seemed a little reluctant to go.
