A deer and a rabbit playing together was caught on video by Steve and Vicky Johnsen, volunteers at the YMCA of the Rockies' Estes Park Center.  The two animals are seen jumping, bumping, and frolicking, just like a scene from the Bambi movie.

Bambi is a classic Disney movie that was released in 1942.  Bambi is a deer who will grow up one day to become the Great Prince of the Forest, the guardian of the forest’s creatures from hunters.  The film starts with Bambi as a doe.  The story is about Bambi’s tragedies, challenges, and adventures as he grows to become an adult.  The other prominent characters in the film are his friends Thumper (a rabbit) and Flower (a skunk).
