Orphaned deer fawn is best mates with her keeper's baby daughter

Meet Ziggy, the baby deer who’s best mates with Isabella, the baby human.

Isabella and Ziggy will spend hours together, with the 11-month-old giving the roughly two-month-old fawn little kisses and pets.

Ziggy was rescued by Isabella’s dad Jeremy Goldsmith after she was found on the side of a road in Stanstead Mountfitchet, Essex, with her mother having been hit by a car.

A passer-by who spotted her called Mountfitchet Castle, which is run by Jeremy, and thankfully he was able to take her in and give her a new home.

Jeremy, 56, said: ‘We’re an animal-loving family. I was brought up in an animal-loving family and I did the same for my daughter.

‘It’s just so natural – they spend hours kissing and stroking each other. There’s no fear like you would expect there to be.’

Jeremy goes to the barn to feed the fawn three times a day and brings his baby daughter along.

Ziggy will spend the rest of her life well-fed and with more pals than just the baby, because the castle already has a herd of five fallow deer that she can hang out with.

Jeremy said: ‘[Ziggy] is now doing well, and being cared for by the staff.

‘We can’t release her back to the wild now, as she would be too tame and not at all scared of people.’
