Grieving Goat Wouldn’t Eat Until He Was Reunited With His Donkey Best Friend

 

It’s all too common we’re exposed to miraculous animal rescue stories and fail to realize the rescue is just the beginning.

That was exactly the case when a goat named Mr. G was rescued from an animal hoarder in Southern California.

According to Animal Place — the sanctuary in Grass Valley, Calif. that rescued Mr. G — the seemingly lucky goat didn’t eat or leave his stall to go outside, for six whole days. Mr. G was depressed.

Thankfully, the folks at Animal Place figured it out.

During his time with the animal hoarder, Mr. G had made a friend with a burro (a small donkey) named Jellybean. The two had become inseparable.

After recognizing this was why Mr. G was sad, Animal Place sprung into action. A volunteer made a 14-hour trip to bring Jellybean to be with Mr. G. At the time, Jellybean was living at a different sanctuary.

After watching the unbelievable reuniting of Mr. G and Jellybean, you’ll be reassured animals are, in fact, more emotionally capable than we give them credit.

Watch the sweet scene above, and then give your pets a big hug.
