Four-year-old boy goes for a walk and returns with a deer as a petFeb 032021
Dominic, a four-year-old American boy, went for a walk in the woods and came home with a beautiful but unusual pet.
One of the things children want the most is to have a pet, if they find an animal alone on the street they will probably manage to convince their parents and take it home. A dog, a cat, a bird could be the most common candidates; however, Stephanie Brown was in for a big surprise when her four-year-old son showed up at home with a baby deer.
The mother shared on Facebook the photo of the unusual friend her son made while on vacation in a national park in Virginia (USA). The post has garnered more than 32,000 reactions and thousands of comments.
"We were packing our bags to go home when Dominic was walking through the woods," Stephanie said. She was in the kitchen when she heard her son cleaning his boots at the entrance of the house, right on the carpet, when she suddenly noticed the little deer accompanying the boy.
"I couldn't even speak, I was in 'shock'. I thought: 'No way, my mind is playing with me,'" he told 8News.
Despite the brief encounter with the animal, Dominic had time to name his pet (Flash) before it returned to the forest.
