Surely, you have seen through social networks, videos or news of people doing atrocities to the animals. This same week I saw news of a somebody who bathed a dog in blue paint, made it drink solvent, and when they got tired of mistreating the poor animal and they threw it into a water tank. Not only does this happens on domestic animals, but also on wildlife. Do you remember the video in which some tourist took a small dolphin out of the water to get some selfies, which ended up dying? Fortunately, we still have hope: there are people willing to risk their lives to save an animal life. In this article, you will find a compilation of videos to re-believe in humanity.
This first video shows the case discussed in the introduction. A group of tourist that were on the beach of Santa Teresita (Buenos Aires) took this Franciscan dolphin (Pontoporia blainvillei) from the water to take some photos and upload them on social networks. The end of this story is dramatic: the dolphin eventually died. How can there be people so selfish to put at risk the life of an animal to take a selfie?
As the object of the article is that you believe in the goodness of humanity, I will not show you any more videos that show their cruelty, although it would be easy to find many more.
17 VIDEOS OF PEOPLE SAVING ANIMALS. THERE IS STILL HOPE!
Fortunately, there are still good people around the world, people willing to risk their lives if it is necessary to save an animal in trouble. They are the true heroes!
#1 RESCUE OF A DOG BURIED ALIVE
A man was walking quietly through the streets of Voronezk (Russia) when, suddenly, he heard the cries of a dog. He did not know where they came from, until he realised that they were coming from under his feet. Without thinking twice, he decided to rescue her. Then he realised she was pregnant.
#2 THEY HEL A DEATH SHARK TO GIVE BIRTH THREE BABIES
The goodness of the human being goes beyond the domestic animals. In this case, a group of tourists found a dead shark on a beach. When they saw that its belly was moving, they decided to do this:
#3 WHAT IS THE REASON WHY THE SHARK HAS A KNIFE ON ITS HEAD?
Another video of sharks, but in this case the animal is alive. Diving instructor Ben Johnson of the Cayman Islands was diving when he suddenly saw a shark with a 30-cm knife nailed to its head. How did the knife come to its head? Thanks Ben!
#4 WOULD YOU REMOVE A HOOK FROM A SHARK’S MOUTH?
Well, this is what this guy did in Port St. Lucie, Florida. He found a shark trapped in the sand, and when he realised it had a hook in its mouth, he did not hesitate to get it out of the water to free it from that suffering.
#5 ANOTHER SHARK FREED FROM A HOOK
In this case, a hammerhead shark of about 3 meters had a hook in the mouth, so that these two brothers from Destin, Florida, decided to rescue it.
#6 RESCUE WITH AWARD
On this occasion, two young men who were sailing on Fuerteventura (Spain), met this whale trapped in a fishing net. When they saw the animal, they did not hesitate for a second, and then they released the animal. The heroicity, which lasted an hour, has been recognised with the Premio Atlántico de Medio Ambiente.
#7 STRIPED DOLPHIN SAVED BY A GARDENER
A gardener from Torrox (Málaga, Spain) rescues for 3 hours, despite the low temperatures of the sea, a striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) that had been stranded. The heat of his heart was higher than the cold of the water!
#8 WHAT WE DO ON EARTH HAS EFFECTS ON THE OCEANS
This other case, which was also present in social networks, is about a sea turtle. You cannot imagine what they got out of its nostrils!
#9 ONE OF THE EFFECTS OF GHOST NETS
When fishermen lose fishing nets at sea, their effects are fatal. These networks, called ghost nets, continue to trap animals, as is the case with this small sea turtle.
#10 A KING COBRA LEAVE ITS SHELTER TO ASK FOR WATER
South India is suffering a severe drought. Due to the lack of water resources, a king cobra decides to leave its hiding place in search of water. Such is its despair that even gets to drink directly from the bottle offered by this good man.
#11 ANOTHER CASE OF DROUGHT AND HUMAN GOODNESS
In this case, the hero is the Kenyan Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, who drives for hours to carry a 12,000 cubic meter water tank so that wild animals such as giraffes, zebras and elephants from Tsav West National Park will not die of thirst.
#12 RESCUE OF A FOX CUB FROM A WATER PIPE
Two men rescue a fox cub which had been trapped in a pipe. All this at the attentive eyes of the mother, which waits for the return.
#13 WOULD YOU ENDANGER YOUR LIFE FOR SAVING A DEER?
Would you endanger your life to help a wild deer who is going crazy because it does not know what it has in the antler? He or she does not hesitate for a moment.
#14 CPR RESUSCITATION TO A DEER
This time, the affected is also a deer, but the feat is very different from the previous one. In this video we see how a woman practises CPR resuscitation to a deer that had fallen in the swimming pool of its house. Will her efforts come to save its life?
#15 A MOOSE IS RESCUED FROM A FROZEN LAKE
A moose walking above a frozen lake is trapped when the ice breaks. If it had not been helped, it would have died by hypothermia.
#16 SOME PEOPLE KILL WOLVES, OTHER SAVE THEM
While some people kill wolves because they say they kill their cattle and lose money, other people whit better heart save them. Such as the case of this video, in which a boy releases a wolf from a bear trap.
#17 STOP THE TRAFFIC!
Finally, this video shows us how some drivers stop the traffic to let a group of geese pass and, thus, not endanger their lives.
You see, while some take a dolphin out of the water to take a selfie in order to share it on social networks, others do what the opposite. Endanger their life to rescue animals that are in trouble. They are the true heroes! There is still hope!
