NARA, Japan, July 22 (UPI) -- A videographer recording the "strange whining noises" made by a deer in Nara, Japan, captured the moment the deer let loose with an unexpected "scream."
Gavin Shapiro, who posted the video to YouTube, said he and some friends recorded the deer's whining sounds because it seemed "pretty funny" and the group was shocked when the small deer's vocal cords erupted with a far more powerful sound.
"We noticed this lone deer making strange whining sounds and thought it was pretty funny. But we could not have prepared ourselves for what happened next. Easily one of the funniest and most unexpected moments of me and my friends' lives," he wrote in the video's description.
Shapiro dubbed the animal a "hilarious screaming deer."
