Animal Heroes

7 True Stories of Animal Rescuers

In our last section, the small group that I was a part of were discussing some strange behaviors that animals act upon. The sexual habits of dolphins and otters were brought up. All strange, all unexplained - but I think that, perhaps, such acts are influenced by humanity. Do you think this could be?

But then this link showed opposite behavior. Wild, wild animals (with an exception or two) saving human lives. Could this also be attributed to human influence? Do you think animals, like the lion, could be changed enough to put aside their dangerous instincts?

They're beautiful stories, beautiful animals, it just makes me think... Do you have the same reaction?

  1. I think naturally all animals have instincts to help out whenever they see another animal or human in danger. I also think animals can be influenced by humans, especially the ones that we keep as pets like dogs, cats, birds, etc. Animals are very smart and if they see us, humans, helping out others then they learn that from us. On the other hand, I think it is very interesting how wild animals help humans when they usually have instincts to hurt them because they feel threatened by them but, if the animals sees that the human intends no threat but, its actually seeking for help than its most likely for the animal to help.
