Until he sneaked up behind me, I hadn’t seen him in a long time.
Meet Oakley, a cute deer with influential friends. Although he is currently developing into a self-reliant buck, Oakley once need some assistance to learn how to take care of himself.
As a result, Oakley made the finest decision to pay a visit to his dear pal.
Oakley required particular attention as a newborn fawn because he couldn’t survive in the wild by himself. Fortunately, the 45-acre Hiram, Georgia, home of country artist Travis Tritt and his wife, Theresa, found Oakley and swore to care for him until he recovered.
Tritt wrote on Twitter, “This is Oakley.” He was an abandoned deer that my wife bottle-fed as a young child.
The message added, “I had not seen him in years until he snuck up behind me as I was strolling my property tonight. He certainly recognized me and understood that I posed no threat. Nature is wonderful!
Tritt can be seen showering Oakley with affection in the footage.
That boy is good, Tritt remarks. You’re still a baby, right?
Oakley expresses his appreciation by letting Tritt pet him, even giving Tritt a tender lick on the arm. The two obviously have a unique bond.
In August 2021, Oakley first appeared on Tritt’s doorstep.
In a recent Instagram photo, Tritt wrote, “This little guy was hanging with me while I had my morning coffee today.” “My wife gave him the name Oakley. The cutest!
Oakley still has vivid memories of the helpful people who saved him more than a year ago. What a lovely way to express gratitude.
