You never know how you’re going to react in a situation until it actually happens. When certain people were called into action, they channelled their inner heroes and saved the day. It takes a selfless person to put their life on the line to save that of their fellow man and that’s all the more true when they do it for a helpless animal.
Animals can’t even say thank you, let alone buy their savior some frozen yogurt as a token of their gratitude. Thank yous and frozen yogurt be damned, these people were willing to go to any length to rescue these animals. Take a look!
