Donkey Dramatically Saved From Floodwaters

After a massive storm knocked down his fence in Killorglin, Ireland, a donkey wandered into a field and found himself stranded in floodwaters. His owner called Animal Haven Animal Rescue, and the group jumped right in to save the donkey, despite the risk in the dangerous waters. They were able to pull him to safety, and his rescuers said he was smiling gratefully. He’s been named Mike for one of his rescuers, and the photos of his dramatic rescue have gone viral. “I think his smile made it right round the world by now,” the rescue group posted on Facebook Monday, and they’ve been thankful for donations made to help Mike and animals like him. He’s now enjoying being spoiled in a nice warm barn and is expected to make a full recovery. His grateful owner stayed by his side throughout the rescue and cried with relief once he was safe. Mike will go back home once he’s recovered and his fence is fixed. — Read it at People Pets
