For animal lovers, it is unquestionable that all lives matter, no matter how vulnerable they appear. Others, however, demonstrate apathy and insensitivity to the pain of an animal un distress, despite the fact that it is clear to many.
However, a video that has gone popular on Facebook recently shows us the exact opposite, entirely restoring our trust in people.
It is the act of a young man who has not been recognized, who did not hesitate to act when he noticed a poor injured opossum in the middle of the street and did not hesitate to act.
He knew that no one else would do anything to save her once he saw her fully defenseless and imprisoned in the mud owing to the recent storms. He faced certain death if he did not intervene to change her fate.
The video reveals how the young guy approaches the injured animal instinctively, without giving it any thought, and does not hesitate to remove his shirt to wrap it up. A gesture that has touched the hearts of millions of people all across the world.
He grabbed her in his arms with the water still pouring from the city’s biggest rains that day, and with great care not to startle her, as well as to avoid an assault by the small animal if she felt endangered.
Surprisingly, the opossum recognized that he was there to assist her and offered no opposition. Instead, she exhaled a sigh of relief, knowing that her life was once again safe.
The child was with a group of friends when they noticed the marsupial attempting to get out of the muck, but all efforts looked futile, according to the footage. Then one of them didn’t hesitate and just did it, unconcerned about the weather, or getting his shirt muddy, or anything else…
So the males got out their phones to get the proof and distribute it on social media, completely oblivious to the consequences.
Man and animal vanish from the scene as he walks to his car with the helpless opossum to take care of everything.
After carefully driving to an area clear of torrents and ensuring that she could fend for herself, the young people said that they released her far from any danger.
In contrast to today’s harshness, this demonstrates that there are compassionate individuals who care about the suffering of others. And it is young people, not older people, who restore our faith in humanity.
The plaudits and comments on social media were swift: “We need more people like this,” “A small animal is also a part of our world, and they are unaware of all the dangers that exist, but due to those who aid, they have a fresh opportunity,” and so on.
«It’s wonderful to see individuals with such noble hearts. How can they not be with people if they are like that with small animals? God bless him and take care of him.”
