Deer Defends Rabbit from Swooping Hawk In Startling Video

A deer displayed an unusual moment of heroism towards another animal after he came to the rescue of a wild rabbit being attacked by a hungry hawk.  Kris Miller was trimming trees around Nordic Mountain country park, Wisconsin, USA, when he found a dead red-tailed hawk on the ground.

When he checked CCTV footage, the operations manager was “astonished” to see what had transpired. The hawk had swooped down and grabbed the rabbit in its claws when the deer dashed in to defend the rabbit.
