article imageVideo: Pig plays lifeguard to baby goat

He probably won't be cast in any Baywatch remakes, but a pig played the part of lifeguard when a baby goat got stuck in a pond at a petting zoo.
The video shows the goat squealing in panic, trying to free his foot that somehow got stuck. With water up to his neck and the goat frantically trying to escape, you see what appears to be a baby pig making a beeline towards the goat. The pig swims directly into the back of the goat, freeing the trapped foot. The pig then nudges the goat to more shallow water, where it finds its footing and escapes to dry land according to MSN.
You can hear the cameraman trying to get the attention of zoo staff, yelling "goat in the water, goat in the water".
Reaction to the "heroic" rescue began pouring in on twitter. One person tweeted "Hero pig saves trapped goat's bacon"
Another tweet said: Emotional! A little 'hero' piglet has rescued a goat stuck in a pond.
Although some viewers on YouTube are saying the video is fake, others believe it to be real. The Huffington Post says some views have dubbed the pig a "hero" while others made references to The Simpsons' "Spider Pig." One viewer wrote "spider pig, spider pig... does whatever a spider pig does, can he swim, on the´╗┐ lake? yes he can, he's a pig... look oooooooout! he is a spider pig"
My Fox Orlando says the location of the petting zoo is still unknown.
