Kangaroo Thanks Man After Being Rescued From Freezing Lake

A kangaroo expressed 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. Despite the risk of injury from the icy water, three brave men decided to enter and rescue the animal.

It’s often said that true character is revealed through kindness to animals, and these individuals showcased that with their act of kindness towards the kangaroo.

Footage later shared on Facebook shows David Boyd and another man approaching the kangaroo with their arms wide open. Seeing no escape, the distressed kangaroo stayed still, allowing the men to lift it out of the water and safely back onto dry land.


Another man, waiting on the footpath, caught the exhausted kangaroo. After a few moments, the kangaroo steadied itself and used a paw to hold onto one of the men’s arms. “Aw, it’s thanking you,” the man recording the video was heard saying.

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