Mom Cries For Help For Her Foal, Rescuers Get Thank You They Will Never Forget

There's no denying that a mother's instinct stretches across all species and backgrounds. That's why this mother donkey was so concerned when its foal was injured by a vicious predator.
The wild animals left more than a dozen bite marks and deep wounds on the foal, later named Genevieve. It was unclear whether or not she would make it through the next few days. She was struggling terribly to stay alive.
In an attempt to help, local people threw turmeric powder on the wounds, but that didn't bring the help she needed. So when rescuers got word of Genevieve's condition, they rushed to the scene. They knew they had to help the innocent baby.
The momma kept licking her baby's wounds, nuzzling her, trying to reassure her. You could see how worried the mom is about her gravely injured baby. It's heartbreaking to know how much pain the baby is in and how the momma is panicky and unable to do anything.
When the rescue workers arrive, they find Genevieve and her mother standing helplessly in the middle of a dirt road. Genevieve's mother watched anxiously as rescuers herded her baby into the transport trailer.
She thought they were taking her foal away and started to freak out, but then the kind people rushed her into the trailer as well. The group had every intention of letting Genevieve heal right next to her mother.
During the following days, Genevieve's wounds were treated and she was slowly nursed back to health. The rescue workers took great care of Genevieve, cleaning her up and treating her wounds. Genevieve's mother was thrilled to finally see her baby healthy and moving again, instead of weak and on the brink of passing away.
Thankfully, the rescuers were able to restore Genevieve's health completely and the plan is to release the pair back into the wild as soon as possible! Watch the incredible rescue story for yourself in the video below.
