Lithuanian outdoorsman Darius Sasnauskas had a chance to witness a birth of two baby deer in his backyard near the Yellowstone National Park in the US. Unfortunately, one of them was injured and was left behind by her family because she couldn’t keep up with them.
“With so many predators around, she had no chance to survive on her own,” Darius writes in his video caption. He decided to bring her home. “I do not support keeping wild animals as pets, but this was [a] special situation,” he writes.
After a lot of hard work, the baby deer was healthy again and it was time to set her free. The bond between her and Darius was so strong, that she kept coming back to him. After one very special evening, she finally reunited with her family.

She couldn’t keep up with her family and was left behind – her mother never came back
“With so many predators around, she had no chance to survive on her own,” said Darius.
He brought the baby deer home and made her a leg brace from an oatmeal box.
Darius fed her every 4 hours and his dog repeatedly licked the fawn’s face.
Soon the baby deer learned to walk again.
“She’s already used to me, and she follows me…but nobody can replace her real mom.”
Darius tried to release her back to the wild many times, but she always returned to him.
Finally, one evening the mom showed up and the baby deer rejoined her family. A few months later Darius spotted her once again, growing up fast and enjoying her life to the fullest.
