A border collie has been dubbed a wonder dog after rescuing an entire flock of sheep by guiding them out of bushfire’s path to safety.
As Victoria-based Cath Hill revealed, the fire was closing in on the fields of Corryong when Patsy the dog helped her save dozens of sheep by herding them out of danger.
“Allow me to introduce Patsy the wonder dog. In the early hours of 31 December 2019, while fire in Corryong was bearing down … she and my brother rounded up the sheep and brought them to the safest paddock on the farm,” the woman explained.
According to the family, Patsy didn’t budge under pressure even though the smokescreen was thick and the fire was closing in rapidly.
“[Patsy] found a safe spot while my brother fought the fire with a tractor and a tank of water. Almost all sheep are safe, along with the hay bales and silage, the shearing shed, and both farm houses,” Cath added.
While Patsy gave it her all to save dozens of sheep, two caring teens from the Kangaroo Island have been dubbed heroes after driving around in their car and rescuing helpless koalas they found on the way.
18-year-old Caleb and 19-year-old Micah have decided to save as many animals as possible after officials announced that at least 20,000 koalas on the island, out of the total population of 50,000, have died in recent fires.
In the video shared by the boys’ cousin, several koalas are seen taking shelter in the teens’ car after they took a break from driving around and looking for victims of bushfires.
According to Caleb and Micah, they also intend to take care of the koalas until they recover and are well enough to be returned to the wild.
“Amid the terrible bushfires in Australia, my cousins went out and saved as many koalas as they could. Good on ’em,” the teen boys’ cousin wrote on Reddit.
