Nature can be pretty metal.
We’ve all seen it. Extreme videos of animals devouring or fighting each other, freakishly big alligators, and the overall brutality that happens out there in the natural world.
However, today a deer gracefully danced around a meadow. It may not be metal, but it sure is majestic.
The Sun posted the video of the deer with tappy toes on Twitter, claiming that scientists had seen and recorded the interaction.
The animal is seen bouncing and spinning around in circles. At one point it stops and looks directly at the person holding the camera. A few seconds pass as the deer just stands there and stares, likely about to run.
Instead, the deer accepts it was caught in the act (not even embarrassed). It then begins to once again fearlessly finish it’s routine.
Recent Deer Rescues
While that video may have just rescued and lifted your heart for about a minute, other people have been physically saving deer from some tricky situations in the last few weeks.
For example, according to an article from WCAX, a New Hampshire Fish and Game colonel rescued a doe that fell through thin ice. Ice is particularly more dangerous at this time of year. The deer did not check to see if the ice was thicker than four inches before crossing. The deer did not follow basic ice safety guidelines.
The rescuer then put a rope around the deer and pulled it out of the freezing water. The deer took a slight break to rest for a bit, before getting back up and scurrying into the wild.
A couple of weeks ago, another man helped a stranded doe in the middle of a freezing pond, according to NBC15. The man slowly pushed the animal off the icy pond. The deer sat calmly, allowing the man to do so.
The man from Wisconsin is being applauded as a hero all over social media. One person said, “He quietly apologizes to the deer! Then says you’re welcome when it safely runs off! I think I’m a little in love.”
The hero, however, didn’t even think twice before his good deed.
“She was struggling and I knew she needed help to get off the ice, I didn’t even think twice about it. She needed to get off the ice and I was the only one around to help her.”
A quick shoutout to all the doe-saving heroes emerging in the news the past few weeks.
