SALT LAKE CITY — While human onlookers apparently did nothing to save a petting goat from drowning in a pond, a pig came to its rescue.

It appears the goat's foot is stuck underwater and is crying for help (it sounds like a human child crying out), when "the hero pig," as described by an onlooker in the video, jumps in the pond and helps push the goat to safety.

At the end of the video, the two are seen happily walking away.

"And there he is, the hero pig," the cameraman says, who in his own right is taking some flack for simply being an onlooker and not trying to help.

But if I know my petting zoos, he would've been in some big trouble had he hopped the fence.
