GLENMONT, Ohio-- A Holmes County girl has a close encounter with a wild animal and it turned out to be so very dear.
Audrey Mast was playing in her backyard Tuesday afternoon when a deer just came up to her. The deer was not at all afraid of the 7-year-old and didn’t run away. She started petting it and at one point the deer even licked the girl’s face.
Audrey’s dad, Chris Mast, saw what was happening and took this video that he shared with Fox 8 News. He said the deer stayed for about 20 minutes.
The family lives in Glenmont, which is a very rural area in Holmes County. Mast said they see deer all the time, but this is the first time one has been so friendly.
