Watch A Real-Life Bambi And Thumper Play Like Best Pals

It's a friendship straight out of a Disney cartoon.

Here's a Disney tale come to life: the story of a friendship between a deer and a rabbit in Colorado.

"Bambi" and "Thumper" (as they've been nicknamed -- after the characters in the classic Disney film) were spotted frolicking, hopping, bumping noses and more outside the Lula W. Dorsey Museum at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, according to, the website of the Denver NBC station.

The station said the two were caught on video last week, and that museum staffers have seen the pair at play nearly every day.
