Freeport, Illinois — You just never know what might happen next sometimes in this crazy life we live. Odd things happen all the time that we never would expect to happen in a million years.
That’s exactly what happened to one Freeport man recently as he was out in his yard just doing a little work one day.
As Jesse Janicke was out in his yard, out of the corner of his eye he notices a deer approaching. Sensing something was a bit different about the situation he immediately grabbed his phone and started recording video.
What he captured was a truly incredible moment with the animal kingdom.
While the origin of the friendly deer is unknown, as you can see the deer walked right up to Jesse.
As if the deer had just arrived home for dinner, it let Jesse pet him as if they had been buddies their entire lives. In fact the deer was so friendly —noticing that Jesse was actually having a conversation with his new found friend, one person asked, “Why does he have those tags in his ears”?
A question to which Jesse replied, “Don’t know !!! It wouldn’t tell me”.
This happened just across the road from Ridott Corners.
