A video of a group of baby pigs trying to save a fish has gone viral on social media and has got people talking about how compassionate animals could be.
There is no doubt that animals are compassionate and they go out of their way to help one another, the viral video has further proven it.
In the video, the baby pigs found a fish lying lifeless on the floor and they used their snouts to push it into a nearby river.
The baby pigs were aware of the fact that fish were created to survive in water and not on land, and when they found it on the latter, they wasted no time to push it back to where it belonged.
Unfortunately, the fish did not survive. It must have been on land for a while before the baby pigs tried to rescue it.
