This is truly a sight that cottagers live for. As Washington resident Debbie Eisele was about to drive away in her car, she noticed an astonishing sight just metres away: a white-tailed deer giving birth to two fawns. Thankfully, she retrieved her camera to film the event, which she later uploaded to Facebook.
In the video, a weary doe, after months of pregnancy, licks her newborn fawn, encouraging it to stand on unsteady legs. As if this wasn’t amazing enough to behold, just under halfway through the video the doe quietly gives birth to a second fawn.
Thanks to Debbie for capturing this rare and breathtaking moment.
