The relationship between humans and animals is both complicated and beautiful. Humans eat animals, but also take care of them as pets. We depend on animals for food as we eat the meat, milk, and eggs. We keep cats, dogs, fish, birds, reptiles, and more as pets.
We try to preserve dying species and help save them through reproduction, all while other members of the human race are causing the extinction of some of the world’s most beautiful animals. It’s truly a love-hate relationship, and while we think animals may be dumb and unaware of their human heroes, we are quickly learning that they are paying attention.
In this video are some of the most remarkable stories of animals who have saved the lives of humans. From pigs to horses to dolphins, these animals sensed that there was danger and sprang into action before the victim even knew what was going on. Take Lulu the pig as an example.
Her owner, JoAnn Altsman had a heart attack and collapsed in her home. Lulu ran to the road and tried to flag someone down. A driver eventually stopped, and followed the pig where they found Altsman unconscious and were able to call for help, saving the pig owner’s life. If it wasn’t for Lulu’s bravery and intelligence, there’s a good chance that Altsman would not have survived the heart attack.
