Kangaroo Thanks Man After Being Rescued From Freezing Lake

A kangaroo expresses its gratitude to a man in the most sweetest way after being rescued from a freezing lake in Australia.

The incident happened after the kangaroo was spotted alone by three men in Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin on Tuesday. The brave men not bothering about injury due to the icy water decided to enter it and rescue the animal.

It’s said that real men are known by their kindness to animals, and these men proved that through their act of kindness for the kangaroo.

Footage later shared to Facebook shows David Boyd and another man approaching the kangaroo with their arms wide open.


With no option in sight, the distressed kangaroo stayed still and allowed the men to lift it out of the water, safely back on dry land.

The animal was caught by another man who was waiting for it on the footpath as the animal was completely exhausted by then.

The kangaroo took a few moments to become steady on its feet, and used a paw to hold on to the arm of one of the men, “Aw it’s thanking you,” the man who was taking the video was heard saying.

The mercy and care given to animals is very pleasing in God’s sight. Proverbs 12:10 “Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.”
