Just as all seems lost for the about-to-be-eaten rabbit, a female deer suddenly sprints onto the scene — and makes a beeline for the attacking raptor.
Incredibly, the deer immediately begins stamping and kicking the deer with its front legs; the rabbit meanwhile doesn't wait for a second invitation to run for its life.
But the deer is not finished with the bird of prey; it spends the next three minutes mercilessly stomping it into the ground. A couple of times the hawk manages to get a few feet into the air, but it isn't as lucky as the rabbit. The deer determinedly swats it down every time, until the mangled carcass moves no more.
A second deer even peeks its head over at the commotion, only to be chased away by the killer deer, who returns to the dead bird for a few dozen more stamps, just to make sure.
The amazing interaction was discovered by the park's 29-year-old operations manager Kris Miller, who had been trimming trees nearby when he came across the red-tailed hawk dead on the ground, and decided to check the security cameras.
