Meeting new people, or deer, can be stressful, especially if you’re a tiny cub named Boog.
Boog met a fawn for the first time at Point View Farm in West Virginia earlier this summer, but a video of the encounter is just now going viral thanks to a Daily Mail article. At first Boog seems okay with the fawn, but he quickly steps back and rises on his two little back paws. Then he retreats even farther and tries to hide behind a staircase, which is not a great place to hide because everyone could still see him but he’s just a baby so what do you expect.
Joel Rosenthal, who filmed the meeting, offers fantastic commentary throughout the video.
“These two just met for the first time,” he says. “This is the first fawn of the year. Boog doesn’t know what to think of him. Fawn doesn’t seem to mind at all. Come on, Boog. What is that? Now he’s hiding. He’s hiding. Look at him hiding. Hiding from that fawn.”
And here’s another video of Boog and the fawn hanging out.
