This baby deer wants its belly rubbed over and over again

Workers were about to clear a tree in Kentucky when they noticed a fawn stuck in the area where the tree would land.

The deer was tangled in thorns and quite rattled by the situation.

The team cut the deer lose. Mr Anthony Dean then picked the animal up and rubbed its belly to calm it down, reported Sunday Express.

Mr Justin Lewis filmed Mr Dean calming the animal and posted it on YouTube on July 25.

In the video, the animal rests docilely in Mr Dean arms enjoying a belly rub. But when he tries to put the deer down, it protests very loudly.

Clearly, it likes where it is. Continue with the belly rubs, please.

Mr Lewis wrote in the video description that the deer "followed us around the job site like a lost puppy for about an hour".

The man later spotted a doe observing them from the hillside. 

"Assuming this was his mother, I carried him about halfway up the hill while she watched attentively. I sat him down, he ran straight to her, and they walked off together," he wrote.
