Most kids have some sort of morning routine: eat breakfast, check messages, pick out their clothes….lead a blind deer to food.
That’s what this ten-year-old boy chose to do before school every day for a week, taking it upon himself to walk the animal over to a number of nearby grass patches and make sure it had enough to eat.
Inspired by the boy’s kindness, the boy’s neighbor, a Reddit user named bluecollarclassicist, snapped a photo of the duo to share on the Internet, then contacted a local rescue group to see if they could step in to give the deer proper care.
“He showed a lot of love and respect and my wife and I are going to talk to his mom about a way she would want to see his act of kindness rewarded,” bluecollarclassicist wrote on Reddit, after the deer was safely picked up and brought to a wildlife preserve.
“We are going to frame this photo for them and offer to take him to the local wildlife preserve whenever he wants to go.”
As it turned out, many folks in the community had been stepping in to help the animal and lead it away from the road, but the boy was by far the sweetest example.
