Man Stops In His Tracks When He Spots Heap Of Matted Wool And Sticks - Then Realizes It’s Alive
He quickly contacted the local farm sanctuary, Edgar's Mission, for help.
Edgar’s Mission founder and director Pam Ahern said in a press release, “I’m not sure how long the poor fellow had been lying there. But I do know that, judging by the length of his fleece, he had not been shorn in many a year, and had he not been found when he was, he would have passed from this world.”
Then Edgar's Mission quickly came to the rescue, moving Alex to safety and starting the task of removing the heavy coat. They carefully removed 88 pounds of wool from Alex’s slender frame. Throughout the rescue, Alex remained calm and trusting, patiently awaiting his freedom.
Once freed from the heavy wool, Alex, now much lighter, stood on his legs more confidently.
Ahern shared the sentiment, emphasizing the palpable sense of relief that marked the end of a challenging rescue.
“I am not sure who was more relieved when the job was done. However, there was a collective sigh from one and all.”
“Chloe and Molly Brown, two elderly and wise rescued sheep, greeted Alex as he began his recovery and knew exactly what they had to do. They let him know that he really had landed on heaven on earth,” the rescuer wrote in the press release.
