Woman Leaves Back Door Open During Storm And Finds 3 Baby Deer In Her Living Room

Life on Earth is made up of a complex network of relationships between different species, which come in many forms. Symbiosis is the most deeply intertwined of these relationships, and we live in symbioses of various intensities with numerous domesticated animals and plants.

To different extents, these cultural symbioses are mutualistic, meaning that both parties benefit from them. We share the same world, so we need to correct the relationship with all these creatures.

The interaction between all cohabitants on the planet should be filled with love, care, respect, and kindness. The story of an Imgur user, Amscolie, an animal enthusiast and amateur wildlife rehabilitator, is a great example of this.  

While in the yard, battening down the hatches amid an oncoming storm, Amscolie left the back door open. She intended to make a quick trip out in advance of the storm and was out looking for several baby deer that she had been watching over.

Her home is located near the woods, and if you live in or around any wooded area, you already know that in such a place, one has a fair share of run-ins with deer.

Yet, she didn’t find them, and just hoped they found a safe spot to survive the storm. When she went back into the house, she was shocked to see them resting quietly in her living room beside her couch.

AccuWeather explains that animals have been known to have superior weather-detecting capabilities — far better than humans. They can sense changes in the air pressure and/or pick up sound frequencies that humans can’t hear.

Amscolie believes the three baby deer instinctively ran inside the open back door looking for a dry place to sleep. And she decided to lend them a helping hand.

In one of her posts, she wrote:

“I raise orphaned wildlife. Recently, the back door was open as a storm was coming. The deer were nowhere to be found. Went inside, was heading to the front door, only to see them next to an end table in the living room. Told them they could sleep in the house for the night because it was going to be nasty.”

She added: “But how could you ever say no to a face like this?” 

Everyone saw her point and agreed.

Deer can survive all types of bad weather conditions, and they mainly rely on their natural body mechanisms. During a bad storm, deer will conserve energy by moving little, and heading to a cedar, hemlock, fir or spruce grove to ensure optimal protection from precipitation.

Fortunately, these three little heroes rode out the storm.
