Animals Saving People
The New Year is almost here and I thought it appropriate to review some great animal stories. They are not necessarily just from 2016.
What I love about these stories is that not only are they about animals saving human lives, but that there is such a variety of animals. There are cats, dogs, a horse, pig, goat, whale, bird, and elephant. I was tearing up reading these stories because, to me, this shows that ALL animals are sweet, precious, loving, feeling beings.
I also was tearing up because I was thinking about how there are actually people out there who hurt these precious beings. I recently saw a post on Facebook about how some teenage boys “rented” a goat from a lady and how they abused him, smashing beer cans on his head. After some time crying, I was outraged. Why would someone ever “rent” out an animal? Sorry…but especially to a bunch of teenage boys!
But there are also good people out there fighting for them, like you & I, and thank God there are people like the 21 year old in the video below who take time out to help an animal. He was celebrating his 21st birthday with some skiing when he suddenly saw what he thought was a rock. It turned out it was not a rock but a horse that had been stranded, stuck in the snow, for 4 days.
I hope you enjoy this week’s “Tuesday Tale”, not just about one animal or one story, but many. They are short stories in this article called “15 Amazing Stories of True Animal Heroes Saving People from Certain Death.”
They call them heroes, I call them angels.
