Since the bushfires starting raging in Australia, over 500 million animals have died. People have come together by volunteering their time and money to help combat the fires. And that doesn’t mean that only humans are helping. Meet Patsy, the 6-year-old border collie.
Patsy recently saved an entire flock of sheep from the Australian fires.
Patsy’s owner lives near a farm where the Australian bushfires began getting closer to it.
That’s when Patsy decided to save the flock of sheep from the raging fires.
She rounded up the sheep and brought them to safety on the farm in Corryong, Victoria while her owner was attempting to put out the fire by driving his tractor equipped with water.
Check out the full video below:
Her owner’s sister told Metro, “It’s like Armageddon. Everyone is just trying to get water and feed to their animals, shoot the ones that can’t be saved, get temporary fences up to keep stock secure, and put out all the logs and stumps still burning. And there’s people who have nothing left but the clothes on their backs. They are expected to get worse around Thursday this week when hot windy weather returns. It’s unbelievable and it’s only going to get worse. That’s why we put Patsy’s story out there. People need something positive.”
Thanks to Patsy and her owner, nearly all of the sheep were saved as well as all the hay bales, silage, farm houses and silage.
