A group of dolphins saved a surfer's life.
Bottlenose dolphin Animals Who Are Real-Life HeroesShutterstock

According to Today, when surfer Todd Endris was facing down a shark attack (the shark had already mauled one of his legs to the bone), he began to feel hopeless—until a pod of bottlenose dolphins came to his rescue. The group of dolphins formed a protective pod around him, allowing him to swim to safety, where a friend was able to perform first aid and escort him to the hospital. Without the aid of these heroic dolphins, Endris might not have seen the same fortunate end to this encounter. And if you find yourself in such a situation and nodolphins are around, Experts Say This Is What to Do if You're Attacked by a Shark.

Pig Saves Owner from Heart Attack

[image]Annie O'Neill / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette via Old Post-Gazette

LuLu the butt-ugly potbellied pig started out as a birthday present given to a woman who couldn't even be bothered to take her home. So the b-day girl's mom, Jo Ann, took the pig instead, partly out of pity, and partly out of anticipation of having ham for Easter lunch. The point is, the pig didn't seem likely to do anything useful anytime soon.

 

LuLu bolted for help, which was heroic in itself, considering her girth. The problem was that she had never left the fenced yard before. How would a 150-pound ham ball manage a fence latch? We'll never know, but we've got money on Porky walking upright.

Either way, LuLu escaped her yard and found a highway. She waited for a car to come by, then walked out into the middle of the road and LAID DOWN TO TRY TO GET THE CARS TO STOP. When no one stopped, Lulu would intermittently go back to Jo Ann to make sure she was OK. After 45 minutes of drivers thinking it was perfectly natural to have to swerve to avoid a giant pig on the highway, someone finally stopped to see what was up with Boss Hog using the street for a bed.

He followed LuLu back to the house and discovered that Jo Ann had suffered a heart attack. He called the paramedics, and Jo Ann was saved. As a reward, LuLu received her favorite treat: a jelly doughnut. Which seems kind of cheap, but hey, it's still just a damned pig.

Madrid Municipal Police shared the video on social media and so far it has been viewed almost two million times.

In the clip, Poncho is called to attend to a police officer who has "fainted" in front of an audience.

Poncho rushes to the rescue and straight away starts pouncing on the officer's chest.

Who's a good boy? Dog hailed a hero for keeping lost child safe overnight in wilderness

Blue heeler Max was awarded a police honour after staying by her side for more than 15 hours in the wild and eventually leading rescuers to the child.

Max came to the rescue after three-year-old Aurora went missing when she wandered off into bushland on a rural property in Queensland state.

Emergency services launched a desperate search for her on foot and from the air on Friday, but could not find her.

But they were aided in their search by the 17-year-old dog, who had stayed with the child during a rainy night before leading her distraught family and rescuers to her on Saturday morning.

Three Lions Save Girl from Kidnappers

10 Amazing Times Wild Animals Saved HumansBlieusong/Flickr

 

In June 2005, a twelve-year-old girl was snatched by four men in rural south-west Ethiopia as she made her way home from school. A week after the kidnapping, her captors were attempting to move her, with police in hot pursuit, when three lions chased the men off. The lions remained with the terrified girl until police officers arrived to escort her to safety. She told them that although she had been beaten by her kidnappers – who it is believed had been attempting to sell her into a forced marriage – the lions had not touched her.

Sergeant Wondmu Wedaj said, “They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest. Everyone thinks this is some kind of miracle, because normally the lions would attack people.” An Ethiopian wildlife expert claimed that the lions may have spared the girl because her cries had sounded like the mewing of a cub.

Fearless goat-herding dog refuses to abandon flock amid deadly California wildfires only for desperate family to return to their destroyed home and find him AND the goats still alive (albeit a little singed) 

Dog refuses to leave goats amid California wildfires

A fearless goat-herding dog who refused to abandon his flock amid the deadly wildfires in California miraculously survived the flames that torched the property completely. Odin, a Great Pyrenees who completely lived up to the Norse god he was named after, was somehow able to protect the eight bottle-fed goats along with several baby deer when the Tubbs Fire destroyed the Hendel's family property in Sonoma County. His owner, Roland Tembo Hendel said: 'Odin has lived up to his namesake. ...He is our inspiration. If he can be so fearless in this maelstrom, surely so can we.'
