Rescue

Two men carry an orphaned baby cow until they can find help

July 10th, 2020

Every day, a lot of people pass by an animal that needs help and chooses to ignore it as they feel like they’re not responsible for them. These animals suffer from a terrible fate and sometimes it becomes too late for anyone to save them. Luckily, there are still people who are willing to help the poor animals they meet in any way they can even though if it means sacrificing some of their time and resources.

They are mere tourists but when they saw a baby cow stranded on the beach, they spared some of their time to help it.

Two guys named Tal and Brandon were traveling together in Sri Lanka, specifically in the Mannar Island, which is found in the western parts of Sri Lanka. One day, they went to relax on the beach. However, they found a calf lying uncomfortably on the sand, and so they decided to assess the situation for themselves.

They assumed that the calf had drowned at first, but thankfully, it was still alive.

“I don’t know what this baby cow’s all about, man,” Tal said, giving a monologue on camera. ”It’s alive, it’s pretty alive and well. I don’t know how to help him.”

They nursed the cow for a short while until they decided to bring it with them away from the beach.

The cow was lying weakly on the scorching sand and it was dehydrated. Tal pulled out a bottle of water and tried to make the baby cow drink it. Since they couldn’t just leave the calf lying there, Tal and his friend decided to carry him off of the sand and find out how they could help the cow themselves. They bathed the cow in seawater to keep its body cool as it had basked under the sun for too long.

Tal and Brandon tried to help the calf walk on its own, but at some point, it became hard for them to keep it up because the baby cow was too weak to walk. Instead of forcing the poor cow to walk, they made the sacrifice of carrying the cow until they could find someone or someplace that could help them.

They had a brutal walk under the heat of the sun just to save the baby cow.

They walked on the beach for hours with Tal carrying the baby cow in his arms. The cow was heavy and it was a rough and exhausting walk as the heat was at its peak. Their goal was to reach a Navy hut they passed by previously, and they figured if they could find some help there.

Tal and Brandon finally found someone in-charge from the Navy, and they led them to the hut. The Navy hut was a Sri Lankan outpost of the Department of Wildlife Conservation, and they were relieved that they went to the perfect place for help. The cow was given another cool bath in the shack before he was to be taken to the fields.

They had to bring the cow back to the field so that it could reunite with its family.

“Brandon and I didn’t know what was out here for us but, as destiny had it, there was a little cow that needed to be saved and we happen to be here at the right time, the right place and we saved [him]!” Tal said as he concluded their trip to Sri Lanka.
