A fairy tale story comes out of Massanutten, Virginia at the end of January 2021. It’s about a 4-year-old boy who becomes friends with a baby deer he found when he was playing outside.

Stephanie Brown, mother of 4-year-old Dominic said it happened when her son was outside playing in the yard while she was packing their things to leave their Massanutten wilderness rental.

As she was cleaning out the refrigerator she said she heard Dominic at the back door cleaning off his boots to come inside. Just to check on him, she peeked around the corner and was completely blown away to see that Dominic had brought a wild baby deer back from the yard to the house.

“I see him and the baby deer standing next to each other almost [about] to come inside!! I was completely shocked! I froze for a second because I literally didn’t know what to do!” she said.

She didn’t want to scare it off so she calmly walked away to go get her phone for a picture. When she returned, she quickly snapped a photo of the new best buds standing together acting as if nothing was out of the ordinary. He wanted to bring the deer inside to eat cereal.

“After I got the picture I asked Dominic to walk his new friend back to the woods so his mommy could find him,” Stephanie said.
