Stuck on a rock in a crocodile infested river, this Wildebeest must have feared for its life. And, separated from the rest of the herd with a group of hippos closing in, the prospects for the animal did not seem appealing. But in an amazing act of animal compassion one of the passing hippos paddles over and gives the wildebeest a quick leg-up to set it on its way. The bull hippo takes pity on the struggling creature and fixes it enormous jaws around it and lifts it away from the rock. The wildebeest was then released from the rock and tried to join the rest of its herd which had been crossing the Masai River during an annual crossing in Masai Mara, Kenya.
