Empathy is a human trait that makes us understand the pain others feel, motivating us to care for others. However, despite our ability to empathize, people too many times just close their eyes and choose not to help. And animals can feel empathy just like humans do.
A series of touching images showing a goose hugging an abandoned puppy on a street, went viral on social media. This story proves that real love and friendship know no boundaries. And this compassionate goose knew exactly what it had to do when it saw a shivering puppy on the street.
The puppy was believed to be abandoned by its mother shortly after birth on the street and it was shivering terribly due to the cold weather when it was found by a kindhearted goose. In the heartwarming scene, the goose did not hesitate to use its wings to protect the puppy from the cold and to keep it warm.
The images made rounds on the internet after a user posted them on a social media platform. According to the post, the user initially thought that the bird was going to attack the puppy after seeing it staying close to the puppy.
However, the goose later used its beak to pet the puppy and kept it warm underneath its wings for quite a while as the puppy fast asleep in its embrace.
Fortunately for the poor little puppy, he was rescued by the photographer and now is well and healthy. But, however, it’s incredible how different species are taking care of each other in times of need.
This is not the first time for ducks and dogs to be seen sharing an intimate moment. There are many instances where ducks became best friends to their dog friends and spend time together.
