NEW LEXINGTON, Ohio (WCMH) — Motherhood knew no bounds when a deer came running out of the woods in Ohio after hearing a newborn human baby crying.
Hanna Burton and her son, Charlie, were outside on their deck when the 5-week-old started to fuss.
Burton was recording as she comforted Charlie, saying, “It’s OK.” Just as she says that a deer comes running out of the woods into their yard.
“Oh, nope, nope, nope!” Burton says as she picks up Charlie.
“This is my baby,” she tells the deer as she stares toward the deck. “This one’s my baby. It’s not yours. Hi, momma.”
“She thinks your her baby,” Burton tells Charlie as she bounces him.
Burton posted the video to her TikTok on Friday and it has since gotten more than 16 million views, 4 million likes and 25,000 comments.
The top comment on the video jokes, “She was ready to name that baby Tarzan and raise it as her own.”
