Hiker uses all her might to rescue sheep submerged in a bog. Watch
A woman in Ireland noticed the sheep stuck in a bog after “hearing a shallow baa baa noise”.
A woman’s quick actions helped save the life of a sheep stuck in bog. Instagram user Lynne came across the animal in distress while on a hike and decided to help it. She also shared a video of the rescue along with a caption explaining how she came across the sheep and what happened after.
“Following the river back down from hiking in the Mourne mountains. Suddenly hearing a shallow baa baa noise. I then turned my head to see the sheep stuck in the bog land. I quickly ran over and pulled the sheep out. I brought the sheep into the river to wash off the heavy access muck on its coat. Pulled it back up into dry land away from the bog. Thankfully the sheep gained energy back and was able to walk over to its flock. The eye connection when the sheep stood up and looked at me says it all. What a moment I will never forget,” she wrote.
The video opens to show a sheep stuck in a bog. Lynne soon gets into action and starts pulling the animal by its horn. She uses all her might to help the animal get out of the sticky situation.
Along with the video, she also shared a few pictures that show the sheep going away after being rescued. In one of the photos, the animal also looks back at its rescuer as if to thank her.
