We have all been this baby deer at some point

Oh to be a baby deer, and be cradled by a kind man and never be set down.

Or at least, not set down without a fight. This spoiled little baby deer knew it had a good thing going, and every time the nice power line worker tried to put it down, it let out an adorable little bleat.

Justin Lewis and Anthony Dean, two power line workers from Kentucky, came across the deer on a job site. Lewis said it was following them around, so they gave it a little help.

"The momma deer was watching from the hillside," Lewis wrote on Facebook to assuage concerned deer lovers. "We carried it up the hillside and he left with his mother. I assure you she did not reject it."

And that's the story of how Lewis and Dean became Disney Princesses.
