When a donkey was rescued from a flooded field in Ireland, his rescuers were rewarded with a big smile.
The poor donkey had gotten itself stuck due to a river overflowing and flooding the land.
A storm had damaged the donkey’s stable and allowed him to escape, but his adventure in the wild soon turned into a nightmare when he found himself trapped in the cold water.
Luckily, Suzanne Gibbons, founder of Animal Heaven Animal Rescue, quickly came to the rescue.
She called Mike Fleming, a member of the local rowing club, and with the help of his boat, a small team of rescuers managed to tow the donkey to safety.
When he realized he was finally safe, the Donkey almost seemed to thank his rescuers by giving them a big smile. Needless to say, the joyful expression on the Donkey’s face was contagious, and his rescuers bursted into laugh too.
