Raccoon forms sweetest friendship with deer who lost her mom – Animal World

Is it true that every breathing being deserves love? If everybody could see how a rescued naughty raccoon colloquially hangs out with a neglected timid deer fawn, they would have more faith in absolute dedication.


Last year, licensed wildlife rehabilitator Carrie Long received a call about a baby raccoon in distress. At just 3 weeks old, he’d been abandoned by his mother and was found clinging to life during a rainstorm.

Long, who specializes in rescuing orphaned deer as part her nonprofit, Texas Fawn and Friends, decided to take the raccoon in. The raccoon, who she named Jasper, was found all alone during a rainstorm after his mom abandoned him.

A woman found poor Jasper, who is believed to be the runt of his litter, soaking wet in a pool of water and reached out to Long for help.

“We weren’t sure he was was going to make it,” Long told

Jasper figured that since he knew what it was like to be a baby that was left on your own, he could probably help the orphaned deer at Texas Fawn and Friends to feel less lonely.

Jasper has chosen to make Long’s deer sanctuary his home despite reaching maturity and being able to go it alone. He now peacefully coexists with the 75 orphaned deer cared for by Texas Fawn and Friends throughout the large area, but there is one in particular deer who has undeniably captured his heart.

The rescuing staff filmed these two youngsters when they were hanging out on the grass and posted the video clip on the organization’s Instagram texasfawnandfriends. It rapidly went viral and reached nearly forty-five hundred thousand views with about fifty-five thousand heart icons. Animal lovers watching Hope and Jasper can’t resist their simply sincere affection. They wish to be able to go to Texas and meet this cute animal couple.

Besides, Carie giggles while describing Jasper as a hyperactive brother Hope just collects herself when he’s around. Not only befriending the young fawn, but Jasper also knocks around Tootsie the pup. The raccoon is such an amiable bouncy beast.

Not only are these fawns given a second chance at life but they are also given lives where they are able to thrive.

“It’s very rewarding work,” she said
