Horse Runs Toward Danger To Rescue Friends Trapped By Wildfire
So brave ❤
As wildfires continue to spread throughout California, stories of hope and heroism are emerging from the smoke and flames.
But as you’ll see, not every hero is human.
On Wednesday morning, a news crew from CBS LA was on hand at a blaze near Simi Valley while first responders and volunteers worked to save horses on properties threatened by the fire. It was then that something incredible happened.
A camera was rolling when one horse, who’d apparently already been rescued, was seen racing back into the smoldering terrain. Turns out, still trapped were two other horses who needed to be led to safety.
And as video of the remarkable moment shows, that’s exactly what the first horse did:
Incredible video of a horse going back to rescue two more horses from the fire caught by @CBSLA @joybenedict and her crew.

Hundreds of horses and other animals have been rescued from the wildfires so far, thanks to the bravery shown by those on the ground.
The Humane Society of Ventura County, serving the Simi Valley area, is one organization now keeping them safe.
