Two men are being hailed heroes in Saskatchewan, Canada. All after they risked their own life to save some stranded foxes in extreme weather condition. Not even two meters of water didn’t stop these guys to show their kindness to some foxes in so much need of help.
The village of Welwyn, about 250 kilometres east of Regina was hit by a hard rain, last days. “All of our crops here are under a lake pretty much,” Colin Graham who lives there, said.
A wild life lover, Graham has been watching a group of foxes on his property for months. “[They] have been sitting out on this rock pile near our house for all spring,” he said. “My sister wondered what happened to the foxes, so we drove out there and there was just one rock sticking out of the top of the water.” On top of that rock, Graham spotted a young fox stranded on what he said it was eight feet of water.
“One guy I was with, Jordan Olson, suggested that we should probably just go out there and swim and get it,” Graham said. While the fox stranded on the rock pile was probably about 75 metres away, Graham and Olson dove in rescue the animal.
“When I first got there, he had a little bit of energy and he bailed off the rock and into the water and tried to swim away,” Graham said. “But I was able to catch up to him.” Graham said the fox was not a lot bigger than a kitten. “We put it in the back of my truck and our house is right close there so we took it home, dried it off, and got it warmed up,” he said.

“Then we were driving later and we saw the mother out there so we took him back.” “They’re reunited,” Graham said, laughing. “I saw them running around the other day.”

So glad to see there still people out there who care about animals. Especially when they are in such desperately need of help. Well done guys, well done!
