Mother deer comes running to help when she hears a baby crying

The love of a mother is the purest love one gets to experience no matter if it’s an animal or a human mother, actually mothers love is the thing we have mostly in common with animals.


One recent viral video is a pure illustration about it. The footage shows a sweet moment in which a mother deer comes to check on a crying baby.

The video was filmed by Hanna Burton of New Lexington, Ohio, who was out on the deck in her backyard with her infant son, Charlie.

Charlie started crying, like infants do often and mom tried to comfort him.

Hanna noticed that the cry of her little one had attracted the attention of a deer.

The animal in her backyard started galloping towards them, and it seemed like it was coming to help the infant, alarmed by his cries. She stands on guard, alert and assessing the situation.

Hanna realizes the deer is following her maternal instincts, and tries to assure the deer everything is okl: “This one’s my baby,” she tells the deer. “Hi, mama!”

“She thinks you’re her baby,” she tells Charlie.

Majority of people loved the video but Hanna says that some of them  “mom shamed” her about the video, saying she shouldn’t have had her infant son out on a deck.

She responded to them pointing out that the deck was heavily padded with blankets and that he enjoys his time outdoors. “He was crying because he was on his belly and couldn’t roll over,” she explains on the follow-up video, showing Charlie happily sleeping on the deck  but this time no deer showed up.

Seeing these kinds of interactions between mothers even though they are from different species is always a pleasure.

Aww truly the sweetest video out there.
