It's always a joy to watch an unexpected animal friendship! These rescued raccoon and fawn became best friends, too. They met at the animal shelter, and miraculously found a common ground.
Not long ago a wounded baby raccoon was found on the streets of Texas, USA. The passers-by reported the raccoon to the local rescue center Texas Fawn and Friends. Although the center is primarily dedicated to rescuing deer, its owner Carrie Long decided to take the poor raccoon in and help him. It was evident that the 3-week-old raccoon had been abandoned by his mother.
The shelter owner began taking care of the raccoon cub named Jasper. The baby grew up healthy, active, and surrounded with love. He was fed on a schedule with milk from a bottle. When Jasper recovered, the foster mom introduced him to the main inhabitants of the center, the reindeer. He immediately befriended all of them, being the only raccoon on the center premises.
But soon Jasper got a friend, a little deer Hope, to whom he paid much more attention. Hope had lost her mother, and the owner of the rescue center took care of her as well as Jasper. The two miraculously have found common ground and become best friends!
"Jasper just adores Hope. As soon as he sees her, he runs to hug her, kiss her, and give her his love. In the evening she usually comes to him and they nap together. It is touching to see. There's a very strong friendship between them," says Carrie, the shelter's owner.
Although sometimes the raccoon is too intrusive, Hope, like a big sister, tolerates everything and accepts her 'brother' as he is. Carrie often posts photos and videos of the couple on social media, that have already charmed tens of thousands of users. This video has gone viral and got more than 432K views.
