Newborns get themselves into some pretty sticky situations as they start navigating this big new world they find themselves in, and it’s not always easy to get them back on solid footing.
An adorable little lamb found herself in one such conundrum last month, apparently falling and getting trapped in an underground pipe at Zed & Co Free-range Farms in Victoria, southeast Australia:
Two girls head the lamb’s cries and alerted the farm’s owners, Marnie and Nick Zielinski, who immediately launched Operation Save Lamb.
They used a huge shovel to dig around the pipe, then split it with a circular saw to try to pry the edges open.
“I can see it … It’s still alive … It’s black,” the children say in a running commentary during the rescue operation.
Eventually, they end up having to cut away a flap, which allows them to get at the lamb and lift her out to safety.
Whew. Good thing those girls heard those muffled cries for help and were able to rally the troops in time.
After such a traumatic experience, this sweet baby got a good dose of much-needed pampering …
