If you’re driving through an area known for high deer populations, you’re likely to see the deer crossing warning sign. It alerts you to slow down out and watch for animals crossing the road. Don’t exceed the speed limit. The lower your speed, the more time you’ll have to see react and step on your brake.
If a deer suddenly darts into your path when you drive 50 miles an hour, your car travels about 50ft before you react. The total stopping distance under good conditions is about 175ft. With poor tires, poor brakes and or poor road conditions, your stopping distance may be twice as long. The videos that show cute little animals getting rescued from places that they shouldn’t have been in the first place are always heartwarming to watch. These videos and the good Samaritans that are present with them always make you believe a little more in humanity.
This video that was recently shared on Instagram by Good News Correspondent on their page shows one such man who rescues a fawn or baby deer. The video opens to show that a person who is present inside a car on the driver’s seat is recording it. The video that involves a deer fawn that got stuck in the middle of the road and got extremely scared was uploaded with a detailed text insert. It helps to understand what exactly was going on in it. It says that the person recording the video helps stop the traffic on the road where the little baby deer got scared and lay down.
Another man got out of a car and went ahead to help this little deer get out of danger and go back to the forest that it was bordering the road. He can be seen using a cardboard box in order to move the fawn as it is best not to touch such a young animal. The animal video was uploaded with the caption that reads Faith in humanity. This man got out of his car to help the baby deer out of harm’s way. A video of a Python strangling a deer has been doing the rounds on the internet and has gone viral.
The video was reportedly filmed in Thailand on Friday. In the video, the Python and the deer are seen lying on the side of the road in an open Zoo in the country. The video has also sparked up a debate on Twitter around human interference in cases like these horrifying video of Python strangling a deer goes viral. The video was earlier shared by the assistant director of DU’s Zoo who clarified that it was filmed at Thailand’s Cow Kia Open Zoo. The footage was recorded from a car and shows the Python coiling around the deer in an attempt to kill it.
The coiling technique is a common technique used by snakes to kill their prey. In this case, the deer was saved by the timely interference by a person off camera. The person used a long stick and repeatedly poked the Python. It finally slithered away and the deer was free and quickly scrambled away to safety. Since being shared, the video garnered over one 4 million views and more than 600 retweets.
The video also invited debate on human interference, with dozens of people commenting on the post about it. Many thought the person saving the Deer’s life was a kind thing to do, while others said that he should have not interfered with the natural food chain. One user wrote the man was right. The human instinct of saving a life is also part of nature’s laws. I don’t see it as interference, another one wrote, It’s wrong and idiotic.
This is not rescue or being kind. In the wilderness, you cannot seize food from an animal. A predator makes a number of attempts to get some morsel for sustenance. This sort of action makes their living even more precarious. Another user questioned if leaving it to nature is the right thing to do even with different circumstances.
In the comments, a man shared a picture from photographer Kevin Carter, who won an award for the picture of a Vulture waiting for a hungry child to die. According to the Twitter user, the picture was captured during March 1993 famine in Sudan and said that it should be humane to get anything in any situation. Another user revealed that the photographer later committed suicide due to the guilt of not helping the child. The debate continued with no one being able to say for sure if the interference was right or wrong. The video was shared by Good News correspondent around a day ago and has received more than 18,000 views on it so far.
It has also received various comments from people who couldn’t stop praising this remarkable gesture on part of the man who helped the fawn and he was careful not to touch the little guy. What a great human, posted an Instagram user, followed by a thumbs up emoji oh how beautiful, sweet little fawn. And a good man, expressed another individual. Aw, so cute. Thank you for helping.
Comment to the third. Deer are more active this time of the fall, crops are being harvested and deer breeding season is in full swing. During the breeding season, Bucks become more active searching for does with which to breed. Bucks are bolder, less wary and more susceptible to collisions with vehicles. Deer movement peaks each day near dawn and dusk.
Anticipate the possibility of a deer on the road and plan on how to avoid a collision. Be prepared to stop suddenly, but braking too sharply or swerving may cause you to lose control and roll your vehicle. But what happened here with this man was very impressive. It’s safe to say that venturing into the depths of the woods isn’t for everyone. Not knowing what animals or other potential dangers lurk behind the thick brush is enough to keep many people away.
What if you come face to face with a bear or a Wolf? A man living in Wisconsin was beginning to realize that he was facing a huge problem. For some unknown reason, he began to notice more and more Coyotes entering his yard more than he had ever seen in his entire life. While the man was a huge lover, an advocate for wildlife, the Coyotes present to the huge risk to the man and everyone living around him. After a lot of brainstorming and talking it over with his neighbors and officials, the man determined that the best course of action was to set up a series of traps in the woods near his home.
It wouldn’t be enough traps to get rid of all the Coyotes, but enough to hopefully deter a large percentage of them from away from his yard and encourage them to stay in their own habitat and territory. But what the traps ended up doing instead definitely was a lot more than anyone involved could have. Burgundy for a couple of days after setting the traps, the man decided that he wanted to take a stroll into the woods to see if the traps had caught anything or merely just activated.
His goal was never to harm an animal to the point of it no longer being able to live, but instead just enough so that it makes the decision to not come back and pass along the same message to others of its kind. Lots of the traps were left looking exactly the same as the man had left them, with no signs of any animal interacting with them.
A few of the traps had looked like they’d gone off, but no animals were actually still stuck in them. There was just one more section of traps the man wanted to check at this point, but on his way to the last section, he saw something that immediately made him freeze in his tracks about 15 to 20ft in front of him. The man noticed what appeared to be a very large deer just sitting there and resting. At first, his initial reaction was to get away from the situation as fast as possible. Deers certainly aren’t an animal you just want to be face to face with.
But then he noticed something about the deer and knew he couldn’t just turn his back on it. The man noticed that the deer was caught in one of the traps meant to capture and deter away the Coyotes. The deer wasn’t in the greatest condition. The trap had wounded its hoof and it looked as though it had been a while since the deer had access to food and fresh water. Due to wanting to help but not being properly equipped to do so at the moment, the man decided to head out of the woods, round up some friends and help get the deer safely out of the trap and back to where it originally came from.
Luckily, friends of the man were immediately available and up for the task. The man and two of his friends set off back into the woods to go and free the deer. They had to be extremely careful because while they had no intention of harming the deer any further, there was no surefire way to communicate this with the animal in a way it could quickly understand. Once they reached the trap in which the deer was gone, it was clear that the animal was in a very defensive state. Getting close enough to free the Deer’s wounded leg while at the same time not getting mauled or harmed by it wasn’t going to be an easy task.
But the group had a plan. One person had a big piece of plywood and that was to be used as a shield to prevent the deer from harming. The other two responsible for loosening the trap and getting the Deer’s leg out of the plan ended up working seamlessly. After the deer was freed, she decided to scurry away, looking back at the group in a way that signified her appreciation for their actions and then went back to seek out the rest of her pack. But the story doesn’t end there.
