    In 2009, Brantley Harrison and her family found a squirrel that had been wounded by an owl. They cared for the squirrel and treated Bella (the name they gave to the animal) for 5 months. After that, it was time to say goodbye, and they let Bella go back to her home in nature. However, the grateful squirrel didn't forget their kindness and has been visiting the family every day for 8 years.

    hese birds don't have a good reputation and are famous for being aggressive and hostile. But Richard Weeze wasn't too scared to help a bird that got stuck in a fence. The wounded swan hugged the man and put its neck around his. We think this was the bird's way of saying, "Thank you."

    The soldiers of the Brazilian army found this small jaguar that was barely alive in the Amazon rainforest. They took him with them and gave him the necessary treatment. The jaguar was not accustomed to living in the wild, which is why the local government let the soldiers keep the animal. They have to watch it closely! Now Jiquitaia (the name the jaguar was given) is alive and well, and he treats the people who rescued him with respect and love.

    A girl whose nickname is Amscolie is a real mother to orphaned wild animals. There was once a storm outside, and she went out to check on the deer but couldn't find them. Later, she found them at her house. 3 baby deer sneaked into her house through the back door that she had forgotten to lock, and they were lying comfortably on the floor. The girl couldn't make them leave the house, and so she let them wait in her house until the weather was better. She got a thousand kisses in thanks.
