Lives risked and life saved in rescue!

Lives risked and life saved in rescue!

Proving that real men are kind to animals, Norwegian mates Erik and Torvald put their own lives at risk to rescue a lamb that was close to drowning. Check out these amazing pics of the rescue!

Erik (20) and Torvald (19) were out and about with a mate taking photos with a new camera when Erik saw the lamb struggling in the waves. Immediately the guys leapt into action and ... well, the photos tell the story. The lamb was reunited with his flock, while Erik and Torvald probably spent the rest of the day rescuing babies from burning buildings and stopping supervillains from taking over the world.

If you reckon this kind of story is inspiring (it gave me goosebumps!) then bear in mind that your decisions every day can have the same impact on an animal's life as these two guys have. Decisions like going meat-free, pledging to not wear leather, or encouraging your oldies to not buy cage eggs (or better yet, try egg replacers!) all make a world of difference to the lives of countless animals.

By making compassionate decisions, you can be a hero for animals, too.

What are some other ways you can think of that Unleashed members can do to help animals?

It's these kinds of stories that ought to be making the news. Proving to the world that compassion and empathy are both attractive qualities accessable by all, as long as they are willing to open their eyes, if only for a moment, to the impact their choices and decisions have on other species. happy

I cried when I first heard about this.

A friend sent me to this website and told me that it's not as happy as it seems. http://iampolemical.tumblr.com/post/25427057889/open-the-cages-a-lamb-had-to-be-rescued-from
I honestly don't know anymore. Neither this website nor the articles where I read the original story have much to back up either side of the debate.
If anyone has more info about all this, please let me know.

If you check out the google translated page of the original story here: http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=no&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.smp.no%2Fnyheter%2Farticle474016.ece it explains how one of the guys first saw the lamb. This is backed up by the photos here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/expresident/pictures-that-will-restore-your-faith-in-humanity?sub=1627910_374812

You know what the internets like - there's always gonna be some buzzkill who just can't accept that a good news story is a good news story.

Hope this helps you go into the weekend in a good mood!
