Who wouldn’t be thrilled to spot a family of deer on their land? Darius Sasnauskas sure was until he noticed that one of the newborns was having a lot of trouble walking. The fawn was so unsteady and weak that its family was forced to leave it behind; a cold reminder that as beautiful as nature can be, it’s still always a struggle for survival. Of course being the nature lover that he was Darius couldn’t just leave the poor thing to the local predators of Yellowstone National Park. So he did what had to be done, he adopted it. For the first week she actually slept on his bed and received around the clock attention. Oh, and you better believe his pets helped out too. The cats mostly ignored the tiny deer but the dogs ended up being fairly protective of her.
In the end releasing her intro the wild proved difficult. The fawn had lived with her adopted family from the day she was born, they were all she knew. But as hard as saying goodbye can be, there’s no way a man can teach a deer how to be a deer. In the end, she reluctantly rejoined her kind.
