A real-life animal rescue captured on camera is taking the Internet by storm.

The 30-second clip looks like it could be a scene from “Babe,” the 1995 hit movie about a pig raised by sheepdogs. But in fact, it happened at a petting zoo.

When the goat went in for a dip in the water, his foot became stuck. The pig jumped to his aid and the two went merrily on their way.

The YouTube page, where the video has been viewed more than 400,000 times, describes the rescue as “simply amazing.”

The rescue is reminiscent of a video that went viral earlier this year in which a mother dog saved her pup from drowning in a backyard pool.

Since that video, described as “too cute for words,” was posted to YouTube in April it has been viewed more than 2 million times.
