Nature needs to be able to take its course, but sometimes it’s really, really hard to watch. That’s especially true when you see an animal suffering.
Just about a week ago, a few hunters were driving along a snowy road in Russia when they witnessed something they just couldn’t ignore. Jumping out of their cars, they intervened and wound up saving a helpless deer from a brutal fate.
The deer was being attacked by a pack of dogs, and while it’s not clear whether they were wild or domesticated, it was evident that the poor deer was fighting for her life — and things were going downhill quickly.
After a few moments of assessing the situation, one man ran over, seeing that the deer was not able to fend off her attackers alone. One dog, maybe, but three? Sadly, no.
Thankfully, two of the dogs sensed someone approaching and scampered away. That just left one wolf-like dog to deal with, and he, too, gets the hint rather quickly.
The man carried her to his car and before releasing her into the wild, he snapped a photo with her.
Watch her rescuers jump into action in the clip below, and share to spread thanks that these brave men drove up just in the nick of time!
