When this family of pigs noticed a fish stranded on the shoreline, they sprung into action and worked together to return the animal back to the water.

Although it seems surprising that the pigs somehow knew exactly what to do to help the fish, it probably comes as no shock to the animals’ biggest fans. Pigs are highly intelligent and social beings and have reportedly saved countless humans and other animals from danger, including fires, drowning, and intruders. They’re also known for their compassion – when a pig notices another creature suffering, it tends to start exhibiting signs of distress. It’s no wonder, then, that they’re also quick to step in and help any way they can!

This video is just one example of these amazing animals engaging in a heroic act.
