This is so cute!
A deer has taken over the task of guarding a nesting goose in a cemetery after realizing she had lost her male mate somewhere in life.
Geese mate for life, so once their male or female counterpart passes on, they spend the rest of their lives alone. Luckily, this mother goose has found a unique defender!
The groundsman charged with watching over the cemetary in Buffalo, New York found the animal's relationship to be very unusual and says he's never seen anything like this.
When he approached the urn, in which the goose has nested in, the deer put itself between the man and the mother goose!
Truly incredible! However, this isn't the first interspecies friendship we've ever reported.
A goose and bull in New Zealand celebrated their 10th anniversary as BFF's this year, while a dog and dolphin in Ireland have been swimming partners since 2006!
Check out the news story above for all the details and to witness the two animal's fascinating relationship with your own eyes!
