Wild animals, as human beings, have gentle feelings. They are caring, affectionate and kind, and are ready to help those in need.
This is so amazing, but a fact. Often we witness selfless and brave actions of animals, which surprises us.
Such a dramatic scene was luckily caught on camera by a volunteer of the Park Service: a horse was saving a filly from drowning.
A volunteer, named Becky, by being on his duty at the National Forest, noticed a group of wild horses on the Salt River’s bank.
He could recognize among the horses the well known stallion Champ, who was grazing there with his family.
Soon, they spotted another herd of horses of the other hand of the river. Then, they started to “talk” to each other.
Suddenly, they decided to join that group and were trying to cross the river.
The current was so strong, that one of the little foals started to drown. Champ noticed that the little creature was in danger, so he rushed to help her.
He immediately took her under his neck and headed her to the bank side.
The baby horse was trying with all her power to keep her head out of the water, and Champ was encouraging the confused foal.
This moment was so touching, to see how a wild animal can be so caring and protective.
