If you didn’t think animals could get emotions and have breakdowns, you’ll believe it after this video.
A lovely goat named Mr. G went on a six-day hunger strike because he was torn away from his beloved best friend of 10 years, Jellybean the donkey.
Yes, that’s right. G and J lived side-by-side in the home of an abusive animal hoarder in California. Earlier this year, the two best friends were rescued. BUT they were separated — for the first time in their lives — when each were sent to different animal sanctuaries in Northern California. How sad is that?
Mr G got so depressed, he refused to eat his delicious food — sweet grains and apples, his favourite — and curled himself up into a ball, refusing to leave the corner of the barn for days.
Everyone at the Animal Place sanctuary knew that something drastic needed to be done.
Jeff McCracken, a volunteer at said sanctuary, offered to drive a crazy 14 hours round trip to bring Jellybean to Mr. G and he did just that.
Our little goat had no idea his best friend was on his way, but when he heard something being unloaded outside, he perked right up. G. knew exactly who it was and he simply couldn’t believe it.
He leaped out of his stall to greet his old friend. Within a few hours, our boy G was back to eating again.
This goat and donkey prove that it’s not just humans who can get by with a little help from our friends.
