He looked at his friends to see if they had any ideas on what to do next. They’d been driving down a road surrounded by woods, so it wasn’t unusual to run into wild animals. But this situation was extremely unprecedented. He figured his friends felt the same way. Regardless, they knew that they couldn’t drive away. They had to do something before it was too late.

Drive like a girl

Steve Knoop had lived in a rural community for a while now, but he had never been in the situation he was in now. When he drove off with his friends, no one had any idea that the day would turn out like this. They were riding along, talking, and having a great time. The country road they were on had virtually no traffic. But suddenly, Knoop found himself slamming on his brakes anyway.

Knoop’s friends were upset with him for hitting his brakes. He could have at least warned them. Then, they saw what he saw. There was a tiny brown lump on the road. At first, they assumed that the animal had been struck by another car. But there was no sign that the creature was injured. And since no one else was around, they decided to check it out. But then things got a whole lot weirder for them.

As they approached, it became clear that the animal was a baby deer. Knoop was overwhelmed with sadness when he assumed that the poor, defenseless creature was struck by a car. But the animal didn’t seem injured, and its eyes were opened. But its legs were tucked into its body in a weird position. It was as if the fawn was trying to appear smaller. Then, one of Knoop’s friends came up with a theory of his own.

One of the guys suggested that the fawn was crouching in order to camouflage itself. It was a self-preservation technique. But another guy suggested it was only a few minutes old, which was possible given how small the fawn was. Regardless, Knoop and his friends concluded that the fawn was unharmed when they noticed it was breathing. But they couldn’t just leave it there, drive off, and hope for the best.
