Jasper rushes to embrace and lick her whenever and wherever he sees her. She searches for him at night and lies down close to him.
Jasper, still a baby raccoon, was found clinging on the edge of life
When he miraculously fully recovered, he didn’t return to his pack
The two animals were recorded on camera by the rescuers as they were lounging on the grass, and the footage was then uploaded to the organization's Instagram account, texasfawnandfriends. The video quickly became viral and received hundreds of thousands of views with over fifty-five thousand heart icons.
The orphaned deer had lost her mother and needed help
Those who saw Hope and Jasper couldn’t help but be moved by their sincere love for each other. They even wished they could visit Texas so they could meet this adorable animal couple.
Whenever wherever she is in his sight, he runs to hug and lick her
In addition, Carie chuckles as she describes Jasper as a hyperactive brother, adding that Hope simply calms down when he's around. Jasper didn't only become friends with the baby fawn but also with Tootsie the dog.
The raccoon is such a friendly, playful animal.
It is the sweetest scene that someone could ever witness in life
Hope is one lucky fawn that was able to find a home. However, the Wildlife Aid Foundation recommends people leave quietly and refrain from handling young deer when they spot one.
This is to prevent more fawns from being hurt and abandoned.
Animal lovers watching Hope and Jasper can’t resist their simply sincere affection
We'd better leave them alone because the mother deer will reject the baby if she perceives human scent. But if the fawn is on the driveway or has urgent issues, we must immediately call the local wildlife center.
Not only befriending the young fawn, but Jasper also knocks around Tootsie the pup
Here is the viral Instagram video that has 2.5 million views
