Lonely Baby Deer Got New Friend Tiny Bunny

The White-tailed deer is the most popular game animal in New York, and it is found in the entire state. A large number of little fawns are abandoned every year, and Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife, a volunteer licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator in New York rescues them and takes care of them before releasing them back into the wild. 

Meet Nellie, a newborn baby deer who is one of the rescued white-tailed deer.

When Nellie was brought to the rescue center, she was too young to keep outside in the company of other fawn or white-tailed deer. Even though Fuzzy Fawn knew that Nellie needed a companion.

Polly, a tiny bunny, was shifted with Nellie.

Fuzzy Fawn shifted an adorable black and white baby bunny with Nellie. She was only 5 weeks old when she met Nellie.

Nellie immediately went closer to Polly and started licking her aggressively. Polly didn’t mind and continued roaming Nellie around.

Both the baby animals lay down together in the corner, and this is how a new friendship was born.

In the beginning, Nellie reacted like her mother. Even though Nellie was only a few weeks old, she understood that the little bunny needed something and someone to snuggle up with.

When it came to food, both of them started following each other. 

In the beginning, Nellie didn’t want to eat grain. When Polly started eating grain, Nellie also started eating the same after looking at her. 

Nellie was noticed jumping around rather than running. Even her rescuer was not sure that it is her inborn personality or if she is acting because of Polly hopping around her.

Both of them formed a tuning with each other. Polly would stay in a corner or just look at Nellie when she is jumping and running around. Even sometimes Polly would move inside a bowl of food while Nellie is playful.

Nellie cuddles up with Polly in a corner while resting or napping. Polly also lay down comfortably under Nellie.

Nellie was always cautious and aware of where Polly was while jumping, napping, or lying down, ensuring not hurt her.

After a few days, Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife began bringing Nellie outside with other fawns, so she could get used to being outside.

Nellie started spending time and playing with other rescued fawns. The three fawns, Nellie, Tinkerbell, and Buddy would be released together in the wild.

They were learning from each other and getting affectionate with each other like Nellie was with Polly.

The friendship between Polly and Nellie is very special and sets an example. We’re happy that both baby animals received the love and care they deserved and needed. We’re also lucky that we could witness it for ourselves. 

Thank You!
