‘Hero pig’ rescues goat in pond (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON – That’ll more than do, pig.

A pig at a petting zoo appears to have helped a goat avoid disaster after the latter animal got its foot stuck underwater in a pond, according to a YouTube video uploaded by user jebdogrpm.

As the goat bleats helplessly – and someone on the video narrates the action, stating that there’s a “goat in the water” – the pig dives in, nudges the goat and both swim to safety.

As Yahoo! notes though, while the goat’s rescuer is given credit as a “hero pig” in the video, we’re not sure the same can be said of the cameraman who witnessed the whole thing.
