Nature

True Acceptance From The Herd

Preview: Season 32 Episode 15 | 3m 10s

Over two years of patience on Joe Hutto's part resulted in first displays of trust by a herd of wild mule deer. But once Hutto won full acceptance from the herd's leader, a doe he called Raggedy Anne, he could move among the individuals in the herd and no one paid attention. He had become part of the family. Touching the Wild airs Wednesday, April 16 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
