Random Act Of Kindness Changed Everything For This Little Lamb

She wasn't supposed to leave that death-ridden field, strewn with carcasses and despair.

Mostly because this little lamb was too weak to even stand on her own after being hit by a car and left to die in an Australian paddock, surrounded by other dead animals.

The farmer considered her worthless and gave her away to a passing stranger.

And with a stranger's leap of faith - and humanity - she was brought to a place of hope.

The staff at Edgar's Mission, an Australian animal sanctuary, named her Fanta. And that's when her incredible journey to the land of the living truly began.

A video posted to YouTube chronicles Fanta's transformation from first fumbling steps, with the help of a shopping bag, to her full, frolicsome glory in a meadow. Among friends.

"It's now [been] a week since little Fanta's been in our care and she's completely turned around from the little lamb [who] arrived a week ago and couldn't even stand," says Pam Ahern, Edgar's Mission founder, in the video. "She's got a determination like no other."

The shopping bag was a hand-me-down from another lamb who arrived at the sanctuary in similar straits.
