Deer Approaches Hunters, Licks Their Rifle (Video)

Most encounters between armed humans and deer don't end well for the latter -- but when a young fawn wandered into a group of hunters firing off their rifles, the effect was surprisingly disarming. The fawn, it would appear, has yet to develop a fear of people, casually nibbling grass and even licking one of the high-powered weapons before continuing on its way.

Does often leave fawns alone throughout the day, as to avoid attracting predators to their offspring, but are often mistaken for orphans in need of help. Wildlife experts suggest avoiding contact with these animals and leaving the area when one is spotted.
