Joe Dennis, of Charlotte, North Carolina, rescued a deer and took it home after he saw the yearling knocked down by a car on January 6.

Dennis said that he saw the car accident earlier in the day and went back later to check on it.

“There he was laying there about 4 ft from where I last seen him laying down, alive and looking around. He needed help and I knew at that moment I had to rescue him,” Dennis wrote on a <a href="" target="_blank">Facebook post about the incident.</a>

Dennis said he carried the yearling to the bed of his truck, where he made a bedding in his truck. “It was amazing he didn’t freak out or at least try to take off. He stood by me and bonded to me because he knew I was helping him and saving his life. He would have never made it had I not gone back to get him,” Dennis wrote.

Since the rescue, Dennis said that the deer had bonded with him and the yearling <a href="" target="_blank">deserved second chance</a>. Dennis said the deer had later been put down due to internal injuries.
