A TikTok video of the moment has gone viral on social media. 🦌
Hannah Burton’s newborn son was crying one afternoon, and a momma deer came running out of the woods to help.
Hannah captured the funny moment and shared it on her TikTok channel.
Hannah was sitting on her decking outside at home in Ohio. While she was trying to calm her son down, she noticed a deer sprinting towards them.
“Nope! Nope! Nope!” Hannah says, picking up Charlie, her son. “This is my baby. This one’s my baby.”
“She thinks you’re her baby,” Hannah told Charlie of the deer.
The video has amassed millions of views and likes since it has been shared.
“When you almost have to throw down with a momma deer because your baby starts crying outside,” she joked in the caption.
One comment read: “Deers are protective, probably thought it was a smaller animal in distress,”
“They’ll fight to protect rabbits among others. They’re kind-hearted.”
The top comment said: “She was ready to name that baby Tarzan and raise it as her own,”
