LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (WTHR) - A Florida homeowner captured a cheerful game of tag between a dog and a deer in their own backyard.

Ethan Cole recorded video as his dog ran along his fence with a deer mirroring him on the other side. He said he was surprised by the encounter and watched for a few moments before pulling out his phone to record it.

The animals played at full speed for about two minutes before stopping.

Cole said his dog, "Ike," is a rescue that is now two years old and full of life.
