A hero bear goes into action and saves a drowning crow in this heartwarming rescue at the Budapest Zoo in Hungary. After noticing the bird in danger, the bear reaches into the water, lifts it by its wing, and drops the crow safely.

Altruism between such distantly-related species is not uncommon. One might think that the bear was actually excited to find something other than carrots and apples in his enclosure, but that is clearly not the case, as the ursine calmly goes back to nom on an apple, after dropping the bird on dry land.

Surely, if the bear wanted to chow on something meatier, he would have ended that poor crow’s life the minute he caught it in the water. Faith restored!

    He was so matter of fact about it. Humans have always believed that animals were void of compassion toward anything outside their species. Love that bear. Too bad he has to live in a zoo.

    Just look at that bear, and kindness it showed the bird, who said animals have no feelings, Think again, birds have feelings also.

    That pretty cool! After pulling the crow out the bear didn't even care about it. Kinda like "there, you're safe. Now shut up. I'm trying to eat".
