Trail cam catches a young deer playing like a little kid
Everybody just needs to break loose sometimes, even deer.
A trail cam set up by photographer Pete Olsen in Ontario, Wisconsin captured an embarrassing moment for a deer in a shallow stream. Olsen has the camera set up to scope out some of the wildlife in the area, and he captured what would normally be described as graceful creatures letting loose a little.
Without much warning, a young whitetail deer rears onto its hind legs, jumps back, and slams its side right into the stream.
It’s not entirely clear if the deer was startled by its reflection or something else, but Olsen thinks the deer was just having a bit of fun, playing in the stream like a bunch of kids would.
“They’re such graceful, beautiful animals,” said Olsen.”[That’s] something I’ve never seen before.”
