For years, the internet has been full of stories about people who have acted without hesitation to save an animal in need. Normally, if you were to see a lion or tiger in the wild, you’d want to run for your life. When they’re in obvious pain and not capable of attacking you, though, your instincts change. You no longer see the sharp claws and bared teeth, but rather someone that can’t survive without your intervention. Animals of all kinds have been rescued by unsuspecting humans, from dogs and horses to a 400 lb bear. The goodwill doesn’t go to waste either. Just as there have been many incidents of humans saving wild animals, the opposite is also true. From a Beluga whale who saved a diver from drowning to three beavers that kept a young, orphaned boy warm in freezing conditions, the animal kingdom is just as loving as the rest of us. Random acts of kindness clearly go a long way.
Some people might not think animals worthy of their time and effort compared to other humans, especially if it puts their own life in danger, but this just shows why our love should know no bounds. We may be more advanced than these creatures, but that doesn’t mean they’re not intelligent. These two Canadian fishermen were well aware of that when their day trip was thrown into disarray. It was just a normal day when a weird sound suddenly caught them off guard. They weren’t prepared for what was ahead of them, but they took it in their stride. With someone’s life hanging in the balance, it was act now or regret it for the rest of their days
