Real-life superheroes are here. They don’t come dressed in superhero costumes. They are everywhere around us. We just need to find out where to look for them.
This story is about a 10-year-old boy who is walking a blind deer through the Chicago neighborhood. The reason is simple. He helps the poor deer to find food.
You can’t hide anything from the power of the Internet. The photo went viral right after it was posted on Imgur.
“There is a blind deer in our neighborhood and this boy (10 yrs. old) walks her from one grass patch to another every day before school to make sure she finds food.”
Oh, my god. Tears are going down my face. I don’t know why I’m the weakest person on the planet when I read something like this.
“My wife and I took this photo yesterday after seeing this happen for a few days. My wife called the local wildlife rescue group a few towns over. They have a vet on staff and will be picking the animal up today to bring her a forest preserve where she can be looked after and stay out of traffic. I hope she does OK because she was so docile.”
According to the person who posted this picture, the IDNR wildlife rehabilitation group came and took away the deer.
“They’re the only people who are legally able to treat and shelter a deer in Illinois. Half the neighborhood came out to see it, including the young boy and his mom.”
The Redditor said that this brave little boy handled the situation with the blind deer exceptionally.
“His concern was very mature. He had only been walking the deer for a few days and hadn’t named her or tried to claim her as a pet or anything like that. Neither did he shelter her indoors or leave food outside for her which is against the law in our state. He just wanted her to be OK and was relieved to know she would be safe.”
“When they took her away I spoke to some more people and it sounds like the rest of the neighborhood has been feeding her and guiding her away the road for almost a week now,” the man further explained. “The little boy was by far the sweetest example of helping and caring. He showed a lot of love and respect and my wife and I are going to talk to his mom about a way she would want to see his act of kindness rewarded. We are going to frame this photo for them and offer to take him to the local wildlife preserve whenever he wants to go.”
Stories like these make me feel that humanity is here and in all of us. We just need to do our best to show it every time we have an opportunity to do it.
This boy deserves respect. He is going to have a great life.
