This man found a poor abandoned baby deer in his backyard who was stuck in a fenced area. The tiny deer was chirping and seemed like she wanted help to get out.

The man was finally able to free the baby deer, and he tried to give her some lettuce, to which she declined. Eventually, she went back into the woods, hoping to find her mother or some food and water.

Although this man was trying to do good and help the poor baby deer, it is important not to touch or handle wildlife unless you are trained to do so. It is important to contact a local wildlife rehabber or someone that is trained and can help the animal.

NOTE: Do not try to help wildlife of any sort unless you are trained. Find a local wildlife rehabber/rescuer or veterinarian ASAP, or call a rescue hotline. Here are some that might help!
