Ken Dominic Arceo and his younger sister were walking outside a town in the Philippines when they heard what sounded to be cries from the bush; a baby goat calf had been lost in the area.
The girl replied to the noises, and they both assumed it was another child, so they searched for the source of the screaming, and as they peered through the grass, they discovered a well with a young child imprisoned inside.
Dominic explained to The Dodo:
She mistook herself for another youngster. However, when we reached the source of the scream, we discovered a hole. We were taken aback. Only our house is close by. We had no idea we had goats running about.’
They brought the tiny goat home after rescuing him and feeding him milk. The young guy decided to pay a visit to his neighbors in the hopes of returning the boy to his family, but no one appeared to know where he was from.
Dominic is counted.
‘No one has claimed it. So we decided to leave it overnight and look for it the next day.
The young guy took care to arrange a cozy area for the small goat calf to sleep in at night. Dominic informs him that they are extremely sensitive to cold, so he cuddled him all night.
The family began their hunt for the young kid the next morning. They went on a tour approximately 30 minutes out from their house and came upon a herd of goats that shared a trait with the small kid: they had white fur on the tops of their heads.
The herd recognized the child, and Dominic chose to delicately place the child down to bring it closer to the group, moving it with extreme delicacy. It appeared to be a happy family reunion, and it all captured on tape.
The herd, together with the small goat, quickly left and continued its trek. The young man and his family were overjoyed.
Dominic also stated:
Their tails were all wagging furiously. The mother rushed over to the child, and he began to feed. Our hearts were overflowing. He genuinely offered me full and unadulterated bliss.
Everything that occurred was a great experience for Dominic and his family, and they will never forget the little boy.
Dominic also stated:
“It’s immensely satisfying to save someone who needed saving.” A valuable lesson for me is that if we have the opportunity to aid someone or any animal unconditionally, we should take advantage of it.
