A street brawl between a deer and a poodle in the middle of Traverse City was more cute than cut-throat.

A juvenile deer found himself in a bit of a jam when a poodle encountered him on a fairly busy Traverse City street.

The video was posted to UpNorthLive over the weekend.

The dog, who appeared to just want a play mate, found a willing accomplice, and the rest is pure animal fun.

And while we're on the subject, here's another dog with his deer friend.
