Kingdomstv writes, “This is the heartwarming story of a little boy who gave up some of his precious day to help an animal in need.”
A photo of a boy walking beside a blind deer in the state of Illinois was recently shared on social media.
It’s unusual to see a human standing so close to a fearful animal. The story behind this image is absolutely incredible.
Unfortunately, in the wild, this poor deer would not have a chance. This child gave the animal a second chance, and it moved us.
Every morning, before going to school, the boy assists the deer in finding a place to eat and rest. He leads him from one patch of grass to another, guiding him safely.
“There’s a blind deer in our neighborhood, and this boy (10 years old) walks her from one grass patch to another every morning before school to ensure she finds food.”
The news eventually reached a local rescue center, which is now caring for the deer so he can live in safety.
“The deer was picked up today by a local animal rescue group (NOT animal control) and will be taken to a vet for evaluation. It will most likely be tagged and taken to a controlled forest preserve, but because she appeared so docile, she may end up in an approved farm or petting zoo.”
It may not be exactly the same as in the wild, but with the deer in its current state, this is unquestionably the better option.
The deer is being given a second chance at life thanks to one selfless little boy.
