While shooting the mother and her two fawns in his camera, Darius found that one fawn had a leg injury and was left behind by her mother near the backyard.

“With so many predators around, she had no chance to survive on her own,” said Darius.



Darius wanted to protect the fawn and so he decided to bring it home to take care of her to send her back to her mother.

“I do not support keeping wild animals as pets, but this was [a] special situation,” he wrote in his video’s description. He helped her get back on her feet with the help of an oatmeal box that he used as a brace for her.

However Darius, knew he would never be able to replace baby fawn’s real mother and so one fine day, the baby fawn reunited with her family. 

“She’s already used to me, and she follows me…but nobody can replace her real mom”
