I confess that sometimes I get pretty bummed out about mankind- how badly we treat each other and animals. It’s stories like these in the amazing animal rescue videos that restore my faith in humanity. They show the goodness of heart and kindness we are capable of.

I am particularly moved by the third segment showing the rescue of a snared coyote. I witnessed a trapped coyote once, dragging its bloody leg in the snow as three truckloads of men with guns descended on it. I still cry when I think of that scene forever burned in my mind. What was its crime? Living.
My thanks to everyone who helped save animals in big and small ways. Thank you for sharing these animal rescue videos.
You too can be a hero for animals. Don’t look away.
Slow down and stay attentive when driving, especially at night. Watch for animals crossing the road. If you see a wild animal in need of rescue, call your SPCA or animal control for help.
