Boy Helps Blind Deer Find Food Daily

In this day and age it’s nice to see something that raises our spirits. 

Every day before going to school a young boy helped a deer, who just happened to be blind, find food.  This story first came to us from Reddit, and Reddit user Bluecollarclassicist.

A blind deer lived in a neighborhood in Illinois, where bluecollarclassisit lives.
An animal like this could not normally live long in a suburban environment; but due to the efforts of this one child, the deer now has a chance to survive. 

The survival rate of any animal declines when they live outside their natural habitats, but add in vehicles and urban sprawl and their chances recede even further, particularly if they’re blind, as this deer was.  Chances of being hit and killed by an automobile were much higher than that of a sighted animal.

As luck would have it, this particular deer wandered into a neighborhood where a kind-hearted and generous boy lived.  Not only did the boy give up time he could have spent playing, he watched over the animal and made certain it had a safe place to rest and food to eat.
Fortunately, the news about this wonderful story flew and reached the ears of a local rescue organization who undertook the deed of moving the deer to a place where it could live safely and happily.

The deer’s 10-year-old benefactor never tried to adopt him as a pet,  he just searched for the deer quietly every day until he found him.
With the rescue organization now alerted to the deer’s plight, they caught him and moved him to a shelter where he could be safe and have a peaceful life among other animals.

Bluecollarclassicist and his wife thought this was one of the sweetest and kindest examples of someone being helpful and understanding they had witnessed and hope to reward the young boy’s selfless acts by taking him to visit the deer where the wildlife rehabilitation group placed him in relative safety at the state wildlife preserve.  Not all heroes wear capes.

Extremely Rare Pink Dolphin Gives Birth To Pink Calf

Rare pink dolphin mom gave birth to a cute baby dolphin. People call her Pinky, and the animal has been spotted in the Calcasieu River in Louisiana. The pink calf was there, too.

The pink mammal became popular 12 years ago. Captain Erik Rue was the first to spot her. The video of Pinky and her baby was posted on Pinky’s Facebook page. The dolphins were swimming in front of a big boat in the Calcasieu Ship Channel.

According to experts, Pinky is a Rare River Dolphin who got the pink color from a rare genetic mutation. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed river dolphins as endangered. Its population is decreasing.

The birth of the calf gives us hope that calves have inherited their mother’s genetic mutation which would help in the effort of increasing the population of rare species.

Captain Rue explained that the dolphin is pink from its tail to the tip, and has red eyes. Its skin is smooth and glossy.

Pinky isn’t affected by the environment or sunlight but sure likes to remain below the surface more than other animals.

She’s an incredible mammal that brings joy to locals, and guests love seeing such a wonderful mammal.

Bridget Boudreaux spotted Pinky and her calf in the river a while ago. She saw them swimming and jumping around. Spotting the mom and her baby was a wonderful experience for her, and she even asked the captain to stop the boat so she can see it better.
