When Jaap Beets, a farmer in Gelderland Netherlands heard noises coming from his livestock outside on September 5, he rushed to their rescue.
He found that one of the chickens had been attacked by a hawk and was being fought for its life!
The brave Goats & Roosters duo came running as fast they could towards this innocent little poultry only hoping it would be enough time before help arrived in case anything happened – luckily these guys are always ready with quick thinking skills when needed most.
Farmer Beets was proud of her rooster and goat for jumping in to protect their chicken from a hawk. She’s also glad that the little ones survived, even though they had some scares along the way!
The CCTV footage shows the moment a goshawk dive-bombed an unsuspecting chicken, plumes of feathers flying through the air.
One farm’s rooster immediately rushed to protect his feathered friend from being eaten by this intimidating predator but found himself in danger when the other chickens turned on him for daring attack one too many times!
The Beets’ goat Bruin also joined the showdown, charging the hawk to scare it away. It turns out that goats – with a reputation for being good artists and discerning yoga practitioners- are actually terrible vigilantes when pushed to their limits!
The dynamic duo eventually saved the chicken, forcing the hawk to fly away empty-taloned just 17 seconds after swooping in.
Bruin the goat swings into action to help his fellow farm fight off a predatory hawk.
The chicken was slightly injured—but Beets said the other animals on the farm “gathered around her” to heal her back to normal.
Meanwhile, it’s not the first time the Beets farmer has experienced such drama – his other goats and turkeys have jumped to the rescue of his flock twice before.
“In the seven years I’ve lived here, that’s the third time it’s attacked our chickens,” he said. “This is the second from the goshawk, and the other was the buzzard.”
Beets’ video of the incredible rescue team has now been viewed more than half a million times on social media, according to SWNS.
“However, that goat, what a hero. He deserves a bunch of alfalfa for himself,” one person wrote in the comments.
Other viewers compared it to a classic “Disney adventure”.
“I grew up with a deep respect for nature and have worked in environmental works and nature conservation all my life,” said Beets. “We try to facilitate nature as much as possible.”
The goat rushed to the scene of the a.ttac.k to scare away the hawk.
