This Young Deer Falling into the Manistee River Will Break Your Heart
This video was captured by a camper in northern Michigan and shows a young deer struggling to make it up a steep embankment above the Manistee River. Your heart will break as it tumbles the full height of the cliff and into the water below.
Spoiler alert before you watch this, the deer is okay and does eventually make it up the hill. The fall comes at :51 when the deer looses its footing. It stays in the water, likely stunned and it's a wave of relief when the deer emerges and attempts the cliff face again. The deer is finally able to make it all the way, albeit with some struggling and scampers off to the woods.
