KONIN, Poland — A jogger in Poland recently took a big risk to help a wild sheep that had tangled its horns on a tree, and a video showing the save has since gone viral.
According to Polish station TVN24, Krzysztof Włodarczyk was jogging with his son near his home in Konin, Poland, when he saw the distressed animal.
The wild sheep was furiously trying to free its horns from the tree. Wlodarczyk approached to try and help the animal.
The panicked sheep started kicking and spinning aggressively even as the man approached, but Wlodarczyk went ahead despite the risk.
Wlodarczyk carefully untangled the horns, and the wild sheep then bolted off in the woods.
His son taped the whole rescue, according to multiple reports.
According to 9news.com, Wlodarczyk said the animal later stopped and turned back to look at its rescuer.
“He stopped on a hill and we measured for a few seconds, amazing,” Wlodarczyk reportedly said.
“I think it was its way of saying thank you,” he said.
That moment was not caught on camera.
