That's not metaphoric, or even hyperbole. It follows a guy who discovers a baby deer with an injured leg, left by its mother and, though he's against taking in wild animals, he knows the deer will die if he just leaves it. And he documented the whole process. It's not only nicely videoed and well-edited, but he even has a music score. And the tale has three acts, with a nice twist in the middle and a satisfying end.
I don't know the fellow's name. He didn't mention it in his post. There's only his log-in name, honeysada. The stories I've seen don't even mention where it's from. It doesn't matter.
Take the 17 minutes. Give yourself a treat.
