This wild stallion has shown us that animals, like humans, can have feelings of compassion and altruism.
In Arizona’s Tonto National Forest, a wild stallion drowned an inexperienced foal while crossing a river.
So this heartwarming moment of his rescue was caught on camera by Becky Standridge, a Park Service volunteer.
This wild stallion named Champ and his family were enjoying their meal on the banks of the Salt River. Then they saw another group of horses appear on the opposite bank.
Among the group were two playful young horses. Champ and several other horses of his family were interested in them, so they decided to cross the river to greet them.
But as the current of the river was stronger than a young horse, in a few seconds she was drowned by the swift river and came to the surface in panic.
Luckily though, Champ was there to save her. He tried to grab her by the back of the neck and then took her gently and carried her to the other side of the river.
He carried her safely till he reached the bank and went straight to her mother. Champ then returned to his family and the herd continued on.
What a heroic act indeed. He is a true hero who saved a life!
