Heroic ‘Lifeguard’ Pig Saves Baby Goat from Drowning [Video]

Heroic pig intervenes to save drowning goat's life

Cute animal videos always win the coveted hearts of the internet. The newest entry? A short video in which a “lifeguard” pig bravely leaps into a shallow pond to save a goat from drowning.

The video, titled “Pig rescues baby goat” was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, and though it only boasts around 3,000 views as of this posting, it may quickly catch viral in the next couple days with attention from snarky blog Gawker and

“Pig saves goat who’s foot was stuck underwater at petting zoo. Simply amazing,” reads the description, and YouTube commentators are responding in the usual fashion that YouTube commentators respond.

Animal compassion: “I don’t want to eat pork anymore! I feel bad!”

Pop culture reference: “That’ll do pig. That’ll do.”

Troll: “This makes bacon taste even more better after watching this. nom nom.”

Political debate: “You’re probably the only person in the world who could turn the warm, fuzzy feelings created by this video into a profanity-laced diatribe against people who philosophically disagree with you. It’s a feat not even the Tea Party’s worst could match.”

My favorite part about this video is the cameraman. Some commentators are giving him grief because he himself did not intervene, instead choosing to document as is the norm these days. He simply declares “Goat in the water!” and while commentators seem to imagine him wagging his finger and swiveling his head with a smile on his face, I instead imagine him taking a power stance and pointing authoritatively, dispatching the lifeguard pig to save the poor, drowning goat.

But judge for yourself. Here’s the video:

    That is so cute! But still don't want a baby pig! There used to be a family with a pot-bellied pig who lived in our neighborhood. Craig fed it cookies. :)

    Who was the jackass filming this? Why didn't he save the baby goat instead of standing by filming the possible death of this goat.The pig had more balls than the human who stood by doing nothing but filming this!
