While hiking up a hillside and looking at the aftermath of a 300-acre wildfire, an Idaho man came upon a stunning memorial service — three dogs guarding a fallen fawn.
“This one got me in the feels,” Louis Armstrong wrote on his Facebook page.
“Lots of destruction and sadness in the Kamiah area— I found this dead fawn this morning. An hour later this sheep dog and her 2 pups are here protecting it. They have been here for hours and won’t leave – barking at people that come near (although they are very nice).”
Armstrong didn’t know where the dogs came from, or for exactly how long they had been protecting the fawn from predators during their vigil.
But the photo shows the powerful, protective instincts of this mother dog and her pups.
