Once-Injured Baby Deer Becomes Family Pet After Being Nursed Back to Health
The family plans to adopt Mila, a baby deer, since local zoos and nature reserves have refused to take in the domesticated animal.
A baby deer named Mila gets treated just like a household pet by a Russian family that saved her from injury and dehydration months ago.
Irina Russkikh of the Urals region hand-fed baby formula to the young roe deer after finding her in a forest.
Mila can be seen in footage provided to The Associated Press cuddling up to children and frolicking in the snow.
She has even become best friends with a calf named Malysh, which means “Little One.”
According to The AP, the Russkikh family plans to adopt Mila because local zoos and nature reserves have refused to take in the domesticated deer.
Although local law states wild animals cannot live indoors, authorities have made an exception for Mila and the Russkikh family.
