This is not a cool video!

Nature at it’s most violent with No Warning!

Actually, about the most disturbing thing I’ve seen in a while. A little warning would have been nice.

Naw, nature is much more violent than that. Interesting video, thanks for sharing.

The poor dog is minding his own business and gets blindsided by an irate female. Reminds me of real life. :-)

i really like the first half of this.

We have a lot of deer where we live and our backyard is one of their favorite handouts. We also have 2 dogs who will, on occasion try to scare the deer away. I’m going to be a little more careful about letting the dogs out when there are deer in the yard – especially when there are new fawns around.

FYI – Almost immediately after birth, the doe will take the fawn away from the birth site and hide the fawn in tall grass. This is because the birth site has a scent and the fawn, by itself, does not. The fawn will remain still in the grass all day until it’s mother returns. I have taken up close pictures of these fawns in their first day of life. Maybe that was not such a good idea.

I guess I need to explain my previous post a little better. Topamax, I have nothing against your putting this video up, it is very unique, to say the least. What I have a problem with is the way it is presented. Incredible video of doe with a fawn. What animal lover can resist? Then the vid starts and there’s the fawn, with a cat. A cat? Didn’t know there was a cat involved. Huh. OK… then the cat starts to exhibit behaviour I’ve seen from one of my cats (with baby squirrels). So far, really, really, cute.

That’s my whole problem, there is no warning at all. As I’ve seen before, a lot of people show their kids these posts, and there is a certain amount of trust given to this site that is not given to others. Once you start watching that video, you can’t unwatch it.

My comment above was meant to WARN others who may not wish to see the natural viciousness a mother may display when she thinks her offspring are in danger.

Why was the dog either NOT on a leash, chained in the back yard, or at least behind a tall (dog-proofed) fence? The lady yelling at her dog in the video had no qualms about having her unrestrained dog out on a public street (unlawful in nearly all cities/communities) and was “surprised” that a deer would protect it’s young? I wouldn’t doubt that this same lady has her dog crap in MY yard so she doesn’t have to pick it up.

Sympathy for the dog, sure. Sympathy for the owner, NONE.

Thanks for the warnings and the general idea of what happens in the video.
I think I’ll pass on watching it.

Thanks, Mary Anne, I was beginning to think I was a bit of a schmuck.

Wow, that is a pretty cool video, it show you how much a mother will defend her young. Nailbanger if that video is the most disturbing thing you have seen you must not watch the news. i live in the mountains and my dogs have enough sense to stay away from the wild life, that dog just learned a hard lesson. And Mark you cannot tell me that if you lived in a neighborhood with houses that close that you would open fire, they would arrest you fast. No warning needed that video is not that bad.

No, you’re not a schmuck – and neither is topamaxsurvivor. Some people just see nature as nature.

However, it sounds like this is clearly a video that would upset me on many levels: animals getting hurt and people stupidly careless with their pets.

I have never had the privilege of encountering a newborn fawn. I am sure it would be a moving experience.

Roper: nope, don’t watch the news, I don’t care what comes on at 11. If you read my post, it says “in a while”. And you better ask Mary Anne if a warning was needed, I wish I had had one, can’t speak about the other 19,000 or so members and thier families. Have a great day.

come on you cannot tell me your going to loss sleep or have nightmares over this video, it is nature ,pure and simple, the survival of the fittest . i have seem worse photos of guys getting hurt on this site. Maybe if more people watched this video they would know how dangerous ALL wild animals are.

Mothers protect there young, the mother I’m sure perceived the dog as she would a wolf.
