It may look like something out of a cartoon movie, but it happened in real life. The video showing the heroic rescue of a hen on a farm in the Netherlands has gone viral on social networks. And it is that they were nothing more and nothing less than a goat and a rooster who came to the aid of the cornered bird.
The recording shows how a hen is brutally attacked by a hawk, which pecks at it forcefully, causing the animal to be plucked and unable to escape. That’s when a chicken quickly appears on the scene from the same farm, who does not hesitate to attack the falcon to free his companion.
Then the goat, who until then had been contemplating the panorama, also decides to help and charges the hawk until he manages to fly away.
The video has gone viral on social networks, where several users have qualified the animals as “farm heroes”. The owner, a farmer from Gelderland named Jaap Beets, told a media outlet in the country that he is very proud of his animals, which is not the first time that chickens have been rescued from an attack. “In the seven years that I have lived here, it is the third attack on our chickens”he explained.
All in all, it showed its enormous “pride” for the animals “that jumped to defend our chicken”, and the “relief” that it had survived.
