I’m starting to think that the deer are not as scared of humans as I once thought. I always thought they would run away as fast as they can to every sound that would suggest there were humans nearby, but this proved me wrong. You wouldn’t think they would visit somebody’s house, let alone stay in the yard, but the young deer in this video showed a pretty fearless behavior.
Granted, the first time he met humans he had no choice. He was tied up in the backyard and wasn’t able to escape even if he wanted to. However, after being rescued he just didn’t want to leave and stayed to hang out with the people. A couple of days later, while the local media were interviewing the rescuer, Uncle Buck, as they named him, made the appearance. Talk about perfect timing!
