Animals primarily act on their instincts, and as a pet owner, you may not necessarily understand what’s triggered your four-legged friend and caused them to behave in a certain way. An animal’s mindset can be difficult to figure out.
An incredible video shows the moment a Golden retriever runs into the water on Sunday to rescue a drowning young deer. Who would have thought?
Mark Freeley had been walking his two dogs, Storm and Sara, near the Long Island Sound in New York when the English golden retriever suddenly bounded into the water, swam out and grabbed something by the neck; at that moment unrecognizable and pulled it back to shore. Freeley captured the incredible moments on video and posted it to Facebook stating:
“WHAT A MORNING… CAN’T BELIEVE THIS,” HE WROTE. “STORM JUST SAVED THIS BABY DEER.”
As seen in the video, Storm brought the fawn to the safety of the shore and began to lick and nuzzle the baby with his nose, occasionally pushing it with his paw as if to wake up the weakened animal.
Freeley called animal rescue who arrived shortly. Frank Floridia and Erica Kutzing approached the deer, who panicked and again the terrified little animal ran into the water. Knowing it was a matter of life or death for the fawn, Floridia jumped in and was able to rescue the animal again.
