A donkey was rescued when rising floodwaters in Ireland took everyone by surprise. The message was put up earlier in social media after the owner realized the donkey was missing. Mike Fleming quickly responded and was there to help out with his boat. Mike and a couple of others went out on the boat to search for the donkey. Once they found the donkey, they put a floatation device around his neck, carefully reeling him in until they reached the safety of dry land.
As you can see from the photos, from the moment that the donkey realized he was back on dry land again and safe from the water, he started to smile.
