FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) -- Wednesday, LEX 18 posted a story about a Kentucky State Trooper that had an encounter with a friendly deer.

A call came into Post 9's dispatch Wednesday morning. Visitors to Minnie Ball Park were reporting that a wild deer was running free and needed to be returned to the woods.

Officer Blake Frasure responded to the call and noticed that children were petting the friendly animal. An avid outdoorsman, he couldn't resist taking a selfie with the deer.

He then helped the animal find its way back into the woods safely.

After LEX 18 posted the story, we received a ton of replies from people in the same area of Floyd County reporting that they had all met the same deer.

The unnamed deer, which we will affectionately dub "John Doe," (Yes. We know a doe is a female) has apparently been running up to people in the area of Minnie Ball Park and engaging in play. He loves to play with children and has even stuck his head in people's open car windows in order to have his head scratched.

Michelle Collins said that the deer walked up to her young daughter in the park. "She wasn't sure what to think," she wrote on a post to LEX 18's Facebook page.

Have you had an encounter with the deer? We would love to hear about it and see your photos
