Well wouldja look at that…
Here’s something you don’t see everyday – a deer that thinks it’s a sheep. The actual story behind what’s going on here is a little more complicated than that, though.
This video, uploaded by The National Trust Charity, showcases a young deer who seems to have lost his way, and until he finds it is staying put with this friendly herd of sheep. From the video description,
Lost and lonely, a young red deer has bucked tradition and found himself a new family in Suffolk — a flock of sheep! National Trust shepherd Andrew Capell discovered the deer while counting his flock at Dunwich Heath in Suffolk recently.
The little deer appears to have become separated from his herd before attaching himself to the first group of animals he came across. He has been living, eating and sleeping with his 100 new friends for about two weeks now and shows no sign of leaving. The sheep do not seem to mind their new guest and have adopted him into the flock. It is hoped the young deer will rejoin his herd if they roam past the flock over the coming weeks.
Quite the story, but seeing is believing, so here is the deer that thinks it’s a sheep in all its glory.
Cute little guy, isn’t he? Hopefully he found his way back to his fellow deer!
