A widow and a stag have developed an incredible friendship based on food over the last four years.

The stag, named Flippen, visits Mette Kvam, 81, twice a day every day and shows no signs of stopping his visits to the home on a mountainside in Aurland, Norway.

This particular feeding sees Flippen standing on his back hooves as he stretches for some bread that Mette is handing out. 52-year-old Britt Haugsevje Vangen captured the footage while walking across the mountains.

“Mette feeding Flippen with bread, and they enjoying each other’s company,” said Vangen.

We know they say not to feed the wildlife, but this story is pretty incredible.
