The deer is part of a small herd that seems to have accepted the floppy-eared mammal as one of their own.

Wilbourn said the rabbit has been traveling with the herd for months. 

In the 1942 animated Disney film ‘Bambi’, the energetic bunny Thumper takes the fawn under his wing and teaches him tricks, including how to say ‘bird’ and ‘flower’.
