Worker saves deer and treats him to a belly rub

Sometimes you just need a hug to give you a bit of comfort and reassurance. Hugs make people feel safe and cared for. It turns out people are not the only ones who need to be held sometimes.
A wild fawn would typically flee from humans. When some linemen rescued a deer in need, however, it decided it would rather stick around than run away. The result is a most unusual video and a memorable experience for everyone involved.

YouTube user Justin Lewis explained that he and his coworkers were clearing a right of way for electrical lines. They came across a fawn who was trapped right in the path of the tree they were going to trim. The fawn was tangled in thorns, so they cut it loose.
Once freed, though, it was evident the fawn was shaken by the ordeal. The workers started to rub the fawn's belly to calm it down and reassure the baby animal, but it turns out that their efforts were a little too successful.
The fawn decided it loved the belly rubs and protested every time the lineman tried to put it back down on the ground.
While it's being held, the deer seems to be quite content. But as soon as the lineman moves to put the fawn down, it cries out and squirms in protest. The good news is, though, that the fawn's mother was nearby and the two were reunited soon after this video.
According to Lewis, the fawn followed the workers around the site for about an hour. When Lewis noticed a doe watching them from afar, he carried the fawn about halfway to her. When Lewis set the fawn down, it ran straight to its mother, and the two headed off together. ​
