Kitten fascinated by baby deer

YouTube link.

I don't know about the habits of deer. Is this normal behavior for a deer, or is something wrong with it?

I wasn't altogether sure if the deer was okay or not.

I hope it is.

Fawns typically 'play dead' during their first few days, as a survival mechanism (they're usually birthed into long grass). I've checked, and there are other videos of it on YouTube. I'd be more worried about inadvertent domestication than ill-health.

Thank you for that Tapejara!

The fawn's behavior is normal; this link has a great explanation of what Tapejara said.'t%20be%20a%20Fawn-napper.pdf

I'd like to know how the fawn got there in the first place.
