 The playful pair, who have since been nicknamed Bambi and Thumper, were spotted at the Estes Park Center by volunteers Steve and Vicky Johnsen.

The video was posted to the YMCA of the Rockies’ Facebook page on Aug. 11 and has been shared 26,552 times.

“No one had seen the deer and the rabbit playing around before and [Steve and Vicky] randomly captured it at the right moment,” Martha Sortland, spokeswoman for YMCA of the Rockies, told ABC News.

“It just brightens everyone’s day when they watch it.”
