It is in the nature of deer to freeze whenever they face danger. This young deer seems to have learned the trick at a very young age and froze in the middle of the highway while his mom tried to save him.
Jessie Larson had just dropped her daughter off to school and was coming back on a Washington state highway when she encountered a baby deer with her mama. She tried to stop the car and slow down as not to startle the deer but sadly the youngster was startled nonetheless.
The fawn lay down in the middle of the highway while the mother crossed the road and hid behind the bushes. The little deer was terrified and remained frozen on its stomach.
Jessie has decided not to interfere because she doesn’t want to upset the deer’s mom. Instead, she turned off the lights and the engine, hoping the deer would finally thaw.However, it certainly took him a while because he refused to move.
A good mom decided not to leave her baby and came out of the bushes to pick up her baby.There sure is some bravery in this action!
Watch the video below to see how cute this momma and her baby deer are.
