A baby goat who suffered a misadventure after falling down a deep pit reduced his rescuers to tears when they witnessed the beautiful reunion with the rest of the herd.
In the emotional moment caught on video, the tiny animal bleats nervously as he trots forward in the middle of a dusty road.
The rest of the herd are visible in the background.
He makes another high-pitched bleat and this time another goat appears to answer his call.
Suddenly, the baby goat launches into a sprint on his wobbly legs and charges towards the herd while wagging his tail and ears.
A large adult goat runs towards him and they meet in the middle, prompting the goat’s rescuers to laugh with joy at the beautiful reunion.
Presumably being the kid’s mother, the adult goat starts to sniff him while he leaps around with excitement around her legs.
The footage was uploaded onto Reddit by user u/kdearceo and has since been up-voted nearly 90,000 times.
In the caption, they wrote: “We found a kid goat trapped in a pit yesterday.
“Took care of it overnight and decided to find the owner but to no avail. Instead, we found a group of goats with the same white fur on top of their heads so we tried to put him on the ground.
“Ninja chopping onions moment.”
Many viewers in the comments below the clip admitted that the moment had them welling up with tears too.
One wrote: “You can see their tails wagging and even the tails of the other goats, too. I’m crying.”
“Look at the mom’s ears and tail waggle like crazy in happiness. I am so relieved for her!” commented another person.
A third viewer said: “This reminded me so much of my son running up to me when he hasn’t seen me for a bit.
“Talking a mile a minute to fill me in on everything he did. This is pure love, thanks.”
