Animals are loaded onto a boat by a man who dives into a flash flood

Without help, these creatures would have been in very bad shape.

Numerous people and animals were displaced by the terrible weather in 2016, when over 23 inches of rain triggered catastrophic flash floods in numerous southern states, including Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi.

In the midst of chaos, two men in Hernando, Mississippi, saw that there were animals in need and decided to take action.

“My brother and I kept noticing several animals making their way out of the flooded woods into a pasture in front of our house,” Frankie Williams, a 26-year-old plumber who also works for a landscaping company, told The Dodo at the time.

“We had a small boat available to go check out the flooded woods. On the way to the woods driving across the flooded fields we saved several field mice, ground shrews and rabbits,” he said.

Opossums and armadillos were left alone on patches of ground with little choice but to cling to anything they could find to save themselves from being washed away by the increasing floods, Williams said, whereas raccoons were able to find protection by ascending higher into trees.

So Williams and his brother traveled around, placing every struggling animal they came across into the boat. Once the water levels began to lower, the animals were released.

“I grew up with a great passion for the outdoors,” Williams explained. “[I] hate to see any animal suffer.”
