    OK, so, wow, this one is really crazy! We get to see tons of wildlife on our farm because it is quite remote and not near any other homes. So, on this day we were filming a new deer fawn that was bedded right near our home in the woods. We were documenting the all day bed down of the fawn. At one point our cat decided to go and check out the fawn. She has befriended deer in the past and has actually played with deer.. But this time something was different!!! I was filming the interaction of the cat investigating the deer fawn. We even tried calling her back so as to leave the fawn alone, as spooking it would have put it in danger being up on its feet on its own. So, as I filmed this whole interaction there was actually a 5 or 6 foot rat snake that was moving towards the fawn. The cat saw this and instinctively tried to intervene and protect the fawn from the huge snake! Grab some popcorn and your favorite beverage because this one is a nail biter. this is ALL REAL LIFE stuff that we document when we see it.

      So what if a rat snake can't eat a fawn wise guy. It's still an interesting exchange. And dude. I like the music. Lol.

      +florin berechet* Snake's in danger, not the cat. The cat tortures and plays with the snake to death.

    The video would've been great if the mamma returned and trampled the snake to death

      I just can't understand why the camera guy didn't do anything to stop this..the snake could have killed the cat or Bambi..or both......that's mess up

                  Having nearly lost a full grown German Shepherd to a brown recluse spider bite (fortunately a fast-acting vet) was able to save her leg; but I think I might have intervened and dispatched with the snake myself. Alive if I could, dead for the sake of the cat and fawn if needed. A human approaching with a pitchfork (and shotgun slung over shoulder) may have made it just vacate the area immediately. But thanks for sharing, great video!

                    Man, there was so much setup for a showdown between the cat and the snake, but nope! Smart cat walked away, and did what cats do - fawn, you’re on your own.

                    I was hoping to see a video similar to when the cat blasted the dog who grabbed the little next door neighbor boy who was riding a bike.

                            And then when it's all over kitty comes back inside the house and gives you all poison ivy from walking through it. That's how it would work out for me anyway lol

                                      You were taping the snake up close. I don’t understand how you couldn’t have seen it if we could see it? I could see the snake at most points without the arrow pointing at it. It’s just confusing.

                                        the snake is a white oak runner...no poison ... totally harmless snake that eat rats and birds and bird eggs . It is a gray rat snake . nothing is in any danger.

                                                      Worst part of this whole video was the music, oh, the keeping poison ivy that close to your home. I'm not allergic to it, but a lot of people are, and all that has to happen is your cat to rub around on that weed and then come and crawl in your lap for some loving, guess what, you're now covered in calamine lotion wondering why.

Any one of these components -- the stalking cat, the slithering snake, or the curled up fawn, with later reunion with mom -- would have made nice a vid. All three together is amazing! Also, the music is just fine and I for one appreciate the additions such as commentary and arrow pointing to snake.
