A newborn red deer is being washed off after getting in the mud. The birth will be recorded and it will be checked for gender before she gets an ear tag. She will then be returned to her mother to the place she had hidden it.

Great documentary shot! When I first read your caption, I thought I would see Jasper getting a bath. ;-) Looks like the cat in the background wants one.

@Steven: LOL! I would have more luck giving a bath to a mountain lion than to Jasper. ;-)
