A few years back, our good friend Tony Girardin introduced us to his unusual pet, Hoppy the deer! Tony and his girlfriend Amanda found an abandoned fawn at the end of their driveway and decided to raise the deer as their own. Tony recorded their time with the deer and is presenting his footage in a documentary. David narrates this special tale, I (Beth Girdler) appear in my capacity as wildlife biologist and our good friends Terry Tufts, Geoff Somers and Kate Murphy provide the great music that supports this movie.
Hoppy the Deer airs on CBC TV this December 25 at 7am and 11am ET and at 10am, 1pm and 4pm Boxing Day. Be sure to tune in!
