Ken Dominic Arceo and his younger sister were walking outside of a town in the Philippines when they heard screams from the bush; a baby goat calf had become stranded in the area.
The girl was startled by the sounds, and they both assumed it was another child. They searched the grass for the source of the screaming, and discovered a well with a young child imprisoned inside.
Dominic explained to The Dodo:
She mistakenly believed she was interacting with another youngster. But as we got close to the source of the scream, we discovered a hole. We were taken aback. Only our house is close by. We had no idea there were goats in the area.’
They brought the tiny goat home after rescuing him and fed him milk. The young guy decided to pay a visit to his neighbors in the hopes of returning the boy to his family, but no one appeared to recognize him.
Dominic is one of the people who counts.
‘It wasn’t claimed by anyone. As a result, we decided to leave it overnight and look for it the next day.
The young guy took care to arrange a cozy area for the small goat calf to sleep in at night. Dominic informs them that they are extremely sensitive to cold, so he cuddled him all night.
The family began their hunt for the young child the following morning. They went on a tour of a region approximately 30 minutes away from their house, and they came upon a herd of goats which had white fur on the tops of their heads, much like the young kid.
The herd recognized the child, so Dominic gently placed it on the ground to bring it closer to the group, moving it with great delicacy. It appeared to be a happy family reunion, and it all captured on tape.
The herd, together with the young goat, left in a short time and proceeded on their trek. The young man and his family were quite pleased with the outcome.
Dominic continued, ”
Their tails were all wagging wildly. The mother dashed over to the child, who immediately began to feed. Our hearts were overflowing. He personally provided me with genuine, unadulterated joy.
For Dominic and his family, everything that transpired was a great experience, and they will never forget the young boy.
Dominic continued, ”
“It’s really satisfying to save someone that needed saving. For me, a valuable lesson is that we should take advantage of every opportunity to unconditionally serve someone or any animal.
