As evidenced by Google's latest set of Android ads, animal best friends -- much like Hansel -- are so hot right now, and the below video from Estes Park, CO just hammers the point home. Recorded last week by Steve and Vicky Johnsen, it shows a young deer and a rabbit playing around outside the Lula W. Dorsey Museum at the YMCA of the Rockies, something they've apparently been doing on a daily basis recently.
It's basically proof that Disney movies are at least partly based in reality:
Yes, the comparisons to Bambi and Thumper are kinda unavoidable, but if we're honest, this clip is even better than that Disney classic for a couple reasons -- the main one being that there's zero depressing footage of Bambi's mother getting whacked by a hunter. Beyond that, though, you kinda expect characters in Disney movies to be cloyingly sweet and friendly to one another; seeing it happen in real life, unscripted, is infinitely more satisfying.
