Footage captures the touching moment police officers rescued a newborn foal near Shpakovsky District in Russia's Stavropol Region.
The police arrived at the scene of a car accident to find a horse and foal stuck in mud nearby. The owner of the animals later explained that the foal was born shortly before the accident and the team was headed back to their stall when both horses broke loose.
A police officer and the horses’ owner joined efforts to pull the foal out of mud. The mother horse restlessly watched her baby emerging from the sludge. The horses were later reunited with their herd, both reported to be in satisfactory condition.
