‘I had just driven from Toronto in my camper van and had to quarantine for 14 days before seeing my mum.
‘I was staying on a friend’s property and saw them when I went out for a hike one evening.
‘The whole time I’m holding my breath and thinking ‘Oh my god this is really happening!’
‘They were just like the Disney characters.
‘I did see them again a few days later just hanging out near a woodpile so they are friends!’
The video was taken June 17, but reemerged recently.
