Dog befriends wild deer in family's backyard
CLARKSVILLE, IN - An Indiana man's video of his dog making friends with a wild deer has captivated millions of people online.
The video posted by Dale Hennessey last week looks like something straight of a Disney movie. Hennessey, a retired police officer, was relaxing at his home when he heard a commotion outside.
When he looked out his second-story window, he was greeted by the sight of his family dog running up and down a chain link fence. On the opposite side of the fence was a wild doe keeping pace with the canine.
Naturally, Hennessey decided to pull out his camera and record the bizarre interaction.
"Never seen a deer and dog play before," He commented as he posted the video on Facebook.
Since he shared the video last week, it's been viewed more than 8 million times and shared nearly 200,000 times.
