Twitter Thread: Finland Attempts To Save Reindeer Using Reflective Paint

As animal lovers, we know that people will go to incredible lengths to help an animal in need, whether it's by adopting stray sick animals who can't take care of themselves or rescuing sick 'ugly' fish who've been abused by their previous owners. And when it comes to animal preservation, people will do the same, helping animals procreate, rescuing and releasing animals back into the wild, or - as in this case - painting reindeer antlers with reflective paint to attempt to stop them from being hit by cars.

It is really unfortunate that this experiment did not work, but we're glad to see people trying to save animal populations. And having this thread go viral on twitter definitely helps bring more attention to the issue at hand, so hopefully, other solutions will be attempted and succeed.

Hi friends! Today we have a found a wholesome video of sweet dears. (Get it? Dears? Because they're deer…Okay you get it.) Boo is a little white fawn who was found by herself in a back yard. After being cared for throughout her babyhood it's time to be return to the wild! She and her friends get soooo adorably excited to return to their roots, watch them wag their tails and leap for joy. 

Sweet boo is a very cautious fawn, she makes sure not to be too trusting of her human caretaker. She slowly warms up a little, and enjoys spending time with the other fawns in the backyard. We loved watching boo grow and blossom into somewhat of a mother figure for the other fawns! The happiness she expresses when released into the wild absolutely made our day.

Abandoned Fawn Or Just Relaxing While Mom Run Errands (Video)

According to the National Wildlife Federation's blog, every springtime, they receive numerous calls and emails from concerned folks who believe they have discovered abandoned fawns.  'I found an abandoned fawn! Where can I take it? The answer is almost always the same: The fawn isn't abandoned and you should leave it right where it is.'

'Female deer hide their newborn fawns in tall grass or brush and move some distance away to feed to avoid drawing predators to their offspring. With the proliferation of deer in suburban areas, sometimes this happens right in our own yards. The fawn simply waits in hiding until its mother returns. Soon, the fawns will be strong enough to follow the does and run from predators, and they no longer need to spend hours alone in hiding.'

Oh Deer: Doe Gives Birth To Twins In Family's Backyard

I think we can all agree that nature ispretty amazing and diverse. It does not happen every day that a doe decides togive birthin your family's backyard! And for this family, it was not the first time this happened either. Apparently, this doe has been giving birth in this family's backyard for many years. This time she had twins, but last year and the year before she gave birth to triplets. Way to go, mama! 

We can't begin to imagine the amount of trust this sweet doe places in the family whose backyard she chose for her annual birthing spot. Female animals areparticularly vulnerable when giving birth because they are not able to defend themselves from incoming threats. We appreciate this mama's trust in her human friends. A big salute to all the hard working mamas out there just trying to find a safe spot to bring their babies into the world!

The story of this fawn and doggo is one of the most wholesome stories ever.

It started off sadly- with the fawn's mother getting run over. But luckily, a lady with a heart of gold saw the fawn and decided to help it, letting it into her home and feeding it. The fawn turned out to be one of the most affectionate and loving animals, running over to the lady when called, drinking from a bottle, and impatiently waiting for her by the door every morning to be let in.

With that lady lives a dog, one who was significantly bigger than the fawn at the time, and since the dog is affectionate and the fawn is as well, a wholesome friendship quickly bloomed between the fawn and the dog. They hang out together, the doggo jumps around, imitating the fawn, and it is just cuteness and adorableness all around.

Wholesome Fawns Being Deer Friends With Other Animals

Tiny baby deer, is there anything more wholesome? They're gangly, their speedy, their adorable, and they have the cutest, purest, most heartwarming ability of making friends with other animals. Cats, dogs, bunnies, apparently fawns just like to cuddle and make friends. 

Unlikely animal friendships are some of our favorites. Any story of an animal from one species befriending an animal from another species has something quite special about it. But there's something about fawns being friends with other animals that is even more special still - perhaps it's the apparent innocence, perhaps it's just because baby animals are adorable. 

Regardless, get ready to have your heart flutter because these pictures are just too cute to handle.

What would you do if a tiny little deer came up to you in the middle of nowhere and started licking your ankle? This woman was as lost about it as we would have been. The last thing that we or she would have wanted to do was rescue the deer while taking it away from its mother and natural habitat. 

So, after a while of staying in the area with nothing to give the little guy, the woman left. But her thoughts stayed with the little deer, unable to stop worrying about it, so that night, she went back to see if it was still alone or if its mother had taken it back, and the deer was right there, waiting. Thank god that she did what she did, since, after taking it Turner's Deer Camp Fawn Rescue, they found out that the deer was no more than a few days old and that it almost didn't make it multiple times. 

It's a happy ending story where the lovely deer is now doing much better. It'll stay in the rescue for a while and then be released into the wild to live on its own, and this is exactly the kind of positive news we are so happy to hear today.

Baby Dik-Diks Are So Tiny It Hurts

At just about 15 inches tall, Dik-Dik's might just be the cutest animal around! Dik-dik's are actually the world's smallest antelope species, a "dwarf" antelope, as if they couldn't be any cuter -- these animals are fun-sized forever. 

They are commonly found in southern Africa and have tiny tufts of hair that are small horns, much like a giraffe. The males have the horn and the females don't, just like deer. 

Dik-dik's seem to be a mix of everything we love and combined into one insanely cute animal.

Meet The Pudú, The World’s Smallest And Cutest Deer

Love miniature animals? Now you can add one to your list of adorable: the endangered southern pudu, which is the world's smallest deer.

Native to South America, the genus includes two species:  Pudu Mephistopheles who live in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. And pudu puda, the most common in captivity, lives in Chile and Argentina, reported by Deer of the World Organization. 

The term "pudú" itself is derived from the Mapuche people of south-central Chile. Because they live on the slopes of the Andes Mountain Range, they are also known as the "Chilean mountain goat". 

The pudu puda can reach a height of 45 cm and weigh up to 13.4 kg, but its northern cousin never exceeds 35 cm and 6 kg. As they're extremely fearful, we know very little of how they live in the wild except that they're solitary animals with the exception of mating season. They take refuge in temperate forests, where their small size and the dense vegetation allow them to hide from predators. 

Pudús are crepuscular, most active in the morning, late afternoon, and evening. Their home range generally extends about 16 to 25 ha (40 to 62 acres), much of which consists of crisscrossing pudú-trodden paths. Today, the southern pudu's population is declining and the northern pudu is too little known for its status to be determined.
