Video: All This Baby Fawn Wants Is to Be Held

Baby fawn refuses to be put down, wants his belly rubbed instead

This weekend, one adorable baby fawn took the Internet by storm when he got the belly rubbing of his life and absolutely refused to let it end.

It was all captured on video, thanks to YouTuber Justin Lewis, who was taking down trees to make way for new electrical lines when he came upon the little guy. Tangled in some thorny brush, the deer was shaken and scared, but after Lewis and his buddy tried to calm him with a little belly rub, the tiny Bambi was like putty in their arms.

Watch as the sweet fawn stretches out lazily, closes his eyes, and takes in the sheer bliss of that belly rub ... before totally freaking out when they try to put him down. As Lewis wrote in his YouTube description, it seems that their plans to calm the baby deer "worked a little too well."

Oh but just wait — it gets better.

As Lewis writes on YouTube, "He followed us around the job site like a lost puppy for about an hour until I noticed a doe watching us 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."

So cute!
