What Happens When a Construction Worker Saves a Baby Deer From Being Crushed? True Love.

Redefining masculinity comes in many forms.

Here, a hunky construction worker comes across a baby deer stuck in brambles. They free him, fearing he’d be crushed by a falling tree.

Justin Lewis, one of the deer saviors, explains the story on his YouTube channel:

My buddy and I were clearing a right of way for the electric lines and came across this fawn trapped in the fall path of the tree we were about to trim. He was tangled in some thorns and was pretty shaken up after we cut him loose, so we started rubbing his belly to calm him down…. which worked a little too well, as you can see.

I have a feeling Justin and his buddy are making a lot of new friends after this… and not just deer.

    Most of us men are like that. Don’t believe the propaganda. My kids and my pets never wanted me to put them down either.
