Pulled at my Heart Strings

I’ve just seen a picture that has really tugged at my heart strings and made me well up a wee bit.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the bush fires in Oz and the devastation to homes and towns, but have you sat back and thought about the wildlife effect by this? We’re always reporting about peoples homes and posses ions being lost, but never for one moment think about the natural implications.

Well, one guy did. He’s a firefighter battling the blazes. In this picture, you can see him sharing the small bottle of water he has with an injured koala.

Just seeing the connection between man and animal here is fantastic. The koala almost knows that he’s there to help him, that he’s trying to stop this devastation from continuing. Definitely a good argument for animal intelligence in my book.
