Very few people can be tagged as ‘animal lovers’ in the truest sense of the word. This 11-year-old girl named Hamdü Sena Bilgin, from a small village outside the city of Rize, in Turkey is undoubtedly a very compassionate soul. The family has a goat farm where they raise goats for their milk and Hamdü Sena is designated with the job title of a goatherd.
Here’s the actual story of how this young girl and her pet dog rescued a goat and her newborn baby in a backpack. It is sure to melt you. Take a look.
“After the goat gave birth, I led the rest of the herd back to their shelter,” Hamdü Sena said. “Then I grabbed two backpacks from the house and went back to the goat and her baby with Tomi.”
One day, while grazing her herd, Hamdü found out that one of her goats had gotten in labour. As it was a snow clad hillside far from home, she was unsure whether the mother-baby duo would be able to survive. She came up with an idea, firstly, she took all of her goats back to the farm, got two backpacks, returned for the mother goat and her baby and bundled both of them in two separate backpacks. She carried the mother goat while Tomi carried the baby goat.
