Very cool footage 3:16 run time
I don't think it ended well for the hawk.

The deer is very clearly not defending the rabbit from the hawk. Whitetail deer frequently eat rabbits and come to a rabbit in distress call looking for dinner. When a rabbit calls for a long time, experienced predators know that a weak predator has the rabbit. Strong and efficient predators kill prey fast. After the rabbit ran off, the hawk clearly became dinner. That is why you saw the deer charge the other deer. It was guarding it's food.

Deer eat lots of easy to kill prey and carrion too. There's a video online of deer eating human remains at a research site.



Elk eat rabbits too.



I have watched a deer eat fox squirrels.

If that is a button buck he sure will be a scrapper if he lives long enough to make 3 years old.

Never knew deer ate rabbits.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Makes sense why I've had deer come in to predator calls but I would never have thought a deer or elk would eat meat or carrion.
