A Bambi-like scene unfolded in rural Washington, New Hampshire, recently, as a homeowner spotted deer and foxes in her yard at the same time, with the foxes scattering as a bold doe approached them.
Washington resident Marissa Vieira recorded footage of a doe tentatively walking up to a pair of foraging foxes. The foxes flee when the deer gets too close.
Speaking to Storyful, Vieira said that although animals regularly visit her backyard, she has never seen deer and foxes interact.
“The deer are usually around often, and the foxes usually come at night with the raccoons and bears,” she said. Credit: Marissa Vieira via Storyful
