That is awesome to see that there is compassion between animals.
Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife, a volunteer licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator in New York state, rescues dozens of abandoned white-tailed fawns and cares for them before releasing them back into the wild.
One of these rescued white-tailed fawns is Nellie, a newborn baby deer.When she arrived at the rescue, she was too young to be kept outside or with the other fawn already there. Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife knew that Nellie needed a companion.
Enter Polly, an adorable black and white bunny.
Polly was also a baby, only five weeks old, when she met Nellie.
Nellie immediately approached Polly and started licking her aggressively.
The two baby animals lay down in the corner together, and it was evident that a new friendship was born.
Nellie was the mother for Polly in the beginning. Even though she was only a couple of weeks old, it’s like she knew this little, fragile baby needed something.
Nellie was very energetic and jumped around more than she ran.
The two animals seemed to have an understanding of each other. When Nellie was becoming very playful, jumping and running around, Polly would move to a corner and just look at her.
When Nellie was resting or napping, she would cuddle with Polly in a corner. Sometimes, Polly would even be lying down comfortably under Nellie.
While Polly understood that Nellie had times of being ultra-energetic, Nellie also understood that she had to be careful around Polly.
She was always cautious and aware of where Polly was when they were lying down or napping together, ensuring she didn’t hu.rt her.
After a while, Fuzzy Fawn Wildlife began bringing Nellie outside so she could get used to being outdoors.
She began spending time with other rescued fawns, TinkerBell and Buddy. And They would be released together into the wild the following spring.
The three fawns were learning from each other, becoming affectionate with each other, similar to how Nellie was with Polly.
The friendship between Nellie and Polly is truly special and not something you see everyday.
We’re happy that the baby animals received the love and care they needed from each other.
